Rural Community Toolbox: Federal resources to help rural communities build drug-free communities

  • Date: 05/04/2021

The Rural Community Toolbox is a comprehensive directory of federal resources developed by the Rural Federal Interagency Working Group. While there are many federal programs to help rural areas, rural communities often find it overwhelming to navigate multiple federal websites. The toolbox was built to meet this need by providing a one-stop access point to federal funds available to help rural communities respond to the addiction crisis. It takes a community development approach, which is particularly relevant in rural communities.  In addition to prevention and treatment resources, it includes information on transportation, economic development, broadband infrastructure, access to food, and much more.
