Who We Are

The Valley County Opioid Response Project (VCORP) was created in 2018 to address the opioid epidemic in Valley County. Central District Health received three grants from the Health Resources & Service Administration (HRSA) and the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) that funded the efforts of VCORP. The first grant was a planning grant in 2018 for $200,000 to develop strategies to reduce opioid use and overdoses. The second was a $1 million from 2020 to 2023 to implement prevention, treatment, and recovery services to reduce opioid use and overdoses. In 2022 Central District Health was awarded a third grant for $2 million for four years to improve the capacity of the behavioral health care system. In 2022 VCORP expanded its grant service area to include Adams County.

Ignite Idaho and Western Central Mountains Youth Advocacy Coalition (YAC) are subgrantees of the current grant. Dr. Royce Hutson is contracted to provide evaluation and strategic planning services. Together, CDH, the subgrantees, and the VCORP Consortium will address prevention, treatment, and recovery in Valley County activities specified by the grant.

VCORP is a collaborative consortium of partners from Valley and Adams counties and works to increase collaborative relationships between multi-sector stakeholders, including clinical, and behavioral health. 

The Valley County Opioid Response Project (VCORP) Consortium meets monthly and community members are welcome to attend.
