Press Release:

    Dear County Commissioners, County Managers, and County Attorneys:

    As you may have heard NCDOJ recently announced five new opioid settlements with CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Allergan, and Teva. These settlements will result in an additional $600 million to North Carolina state and local governments. This is in addition to the first round of settlements which resulted in $750 million being distributed to North Carolina state and local governments, with 85% going to local governments.

    The distribution formula will mirror the original MOA allocation model outlined in the first settlement agreement, which your county signed in 2021. This is good news, and we hope you will sign the agreements as soon as possible.

    To receive the settlement funds, several actions are needed.

    ACTION ONE:

  • Your Board must approve a resolution joining the settlements.
  • A sample resolution is attached for your consideration.
  • Approving the resolution will authorize your county staff to sign the settlement paperwork.

    ACTION TWO:

  • County staff needs to sign the settlement paperwork.
  • Be sure to sign all five settlements and the Supplemental Agreement for Additional Funds (SAAF).
  • Docu-sign links will be provided to county staff (Manager or Attorney) to sign the agreements.

    DEADLINE:

  • Counties have until April 18 to join and sign the settlement agreements.

    HELPFUL MATERIALS ATTACHED:


    QUESTIONS:

  • For legal questions, please consult your county attorney or local counsel.
  • NCDOJ - email opioidsettlement@ncdoj.gov
  • NCACC - Amy Bason / NCACC Deputy Director & General Counsel / amy.bason@ncacc.org

    We hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
