Master Consortium Sustainability Assessment and Planning

At the COP-RCORP Master Consortium level, project directors from the five local consortia, PIRE, and Ohio University are engaging in a series of activities related to sustainability assessment and planning. These activities are coordinated by HRSA’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) and the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program – Technical Assistance Team (RCORP-TA, led by JBS International) and are conducted on a periodic basis as part of the national evaluation of the RCORP grant. Working together, the COP-RCORP Master Consortium utilizes the RCORP-Implementation Program Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool, which tracks seven essential sustainability elements: vision, outcomes, financial base, community support & key champions, ability to adapt to changing conditions, and workforce development.
