The toolbox provides information about funding opportunities and technical assistance offered by 16 federal departments and agencies. It also includes a library of information related to drug addiction in rural American including such topics as adverse childhood experiences; American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian populations; economic development; healthcare workforce, housing and homelessness; infrastructure; medication assisted treatment; recovery, suicide and suicide prevention; and transportation. Also on the site is a Community Assessment Tool and Rural Community Action Guide to help local policy makers use data to help develop community plans to address addiction.
