MH Update – 8/20/20 – Rural Community Toolbox Website & Resources

Dear Colleagues and Partners,

Earlier this summer, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) launched the Rural Community Toolbox website.  The site serves as the repository of information resources from 16 federal departments and agencies and a clearinghouse for funding and technical assistance.  The site also houses:

  • Community Assessment Tool (data)
  • Rural Community Action Guide (recommended action steps)


The Rural Community Toolbox can be found at

Please feel free to share with your networks.


Be well and stay safe,
