The National Association of Counties, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State Justice Institute (SJI) are co-sponsoring the Reaching Rural: Advancing Collaborative Solutions initiative. BJA, CDC, and SJI are supporting this initiative as part of an ongoing interagency partnership to strengthen public safety and public health collaboration under BJA’s Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program.

Reaching Rural is a 1-year initiative designed for rural justice and public safety practitioners; public health and behavioral health practitioners; city, county, and tribal leaders; and community groups. Through this initiative, BJA seeks applications from individual practitioners and cross-sector teams interested in adopting bold solutions and reimagining how diverse organizations and agencies with different missions can engage to address substance use and misuse in rural communities.
