Opioid Settlement Funds

In July 2021, Attorney General Josh Stein announced a historic $26 billion agreement that will help bring desperately needed help to communities harmed by the opioid epidemic. The state of North Carolina and all 100 counties, including Cumberland County, joined the agreement.

A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the State and local government directs how opioid settlement funds are distributed in our state. These potential settlements and resolutions could bring as much as $850 million to North Carolina over an 18-year period to support state and local efforts to address the epidemic.

Cumberland County Government is estimated to receive $16,984,644 over an 18-year period (2022-2038). The City of Fayetteville is estimated to receive $1,994,964 during the same 18-year period.

Before spending settlement funds, every local county or municipality must first select which opioid mitigation strategies they would like to fund. Learn more about the mitigation strategies.
