Mountain Plains Rural Opioid Technical Assistance Center

All states in HHS Region 8 prioritized behavioral health in their respective state Public Health Plans and identified the following populations, which will be the populations of focus for this grant, as those most impacted by behavioral health needs: Veterans, older adults, youth-adolescents, and young adults, American Indian/Alaska Native; Black/African American; Hispanic/Latino, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and others (LGBTQ+). Over the grant period, MP ROTAC will focus on reaching these disparate populations in rural, tribal, and frontier communities, as well as any other targeted populations gathered from partners and stakeholders during the needs assessment and technical assistance and training planning.
