Opioid Settlements

About the Opioid Settlements

The state of Michigan is slated to receive nearly $800 million from the opioid settlements over the next 18 years. Fifty percent (50%) of the settlement amount will be distributed directly to county, city, and township governments. The remaining 50% will be distributed to the state government's specially designated fund, The Michigan Opioid Healing and Recovery Fund.

Michigan Opioid Healing and Recovery Fund

Approximately 50% of settlement funds will be placed into the Michigan Opioid Healing and Recovery Fund, which was created in 2022 by the state legislature. The Opioid Advisory Commission, also created in 2022 by the legislature and staffed by the legislative council, is charged with making recommendations on the fund's expenditures. Learn more about public funding opportunities.

Opioid Settlement Data

MDHHS is working to strengthen the capacity of communities to prevent drug overdoses by promoting the exchange of data. This data can be used to effectively implement and improve programs in communities throughout the state. The Michigan Overdose Data to Action (MODA) dashboard serves as an important resource in guiding state and local settlement planning. MDHHS will also monitor the implementation and evaluate the public health impact of settlement funded abatement activities to ensure these funds are effectively invested.  Explore the MODA dashboard
