Opioid Settlement Funds Allocated to Serve New Yorkers With Addiction


Gov. Kathy Hochul’s announced that New York State has made available all the funding provided in the first year of the opioid settlement agreements. 

The funding, approximately $192.8 million, is supporting a variety of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and recovery initiatives to help New Yorkers impacted by the opioid and overdose crisis. In total, New York is receiving more than $2 billion through various settlement agreements with opioid manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies that were secured by Attorney General Letitia James.

Hochul says these efforts are making a difference in communities across the state, and that they’re continuing to work to deliver further support and assistance so all New Yorkers can access the services they need through a series of initiatives to address all types of behavioral health needs.
