Cities Required by March 31 to Report Opioid Settlement Fund Use

March 16, 2023

Cities that received settlement funds in 2022 from opioid manufacturers and distributors are required to report use of funds even if they have not yet been spent.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has developed an online reporting system for cities to report the use of funds received from the 2022 opioid settlement with pharmaceutical distributors McKesson, Cardinal Health, and AmerisourceBergen, and opioid manufacturer Johnson & Johnson.

The DHS reporting website will serve as a resource for Minnesotans, including staff from cities, counties, and tribes, that are interested in updates and resources regarding the expenditure of funds received from the 2022 opioid settlement.
