Investments Being Granted Supporting Partnerships in Recovery Ecosystems (INSPIRE) for the Appalachian Region

Letters of Intent February 16. The federal Appalachian Regional Commission works in partnership with 13 states to promote economic growth where one-fourth of the region’s 423 counties are rural.  The INSPIRE initiative supports the post-treatment to employment continuum, which could include investments in healthcare networks that support substance use disorder recovery, recovery-focused job training programs, and other initiatives that coordinate these efforts.
