Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced that the first round of payments has been made to local governments electronically from the state’s OneOhio settlement with national opioid distributors.

The governor said this first round of payments totaled more than 8.6 million, but that local governments will continue receiving payments from the settlement for the next 18 years.

Local payments range from a few hundred dollars, such as Waynesville, which received about $400, to hundreds of thousands, such as Montgomery County, which received over $400,000. In total, area governments received over $1.7 million

According to OneOhio settlement documents, the funds are meant to be used for expanding available treatments for people with substance use disorders, preventing substance use, provide substance use education, decrease the “oversupply” of legal and illicit opioids and supporting addiction recovery services.
