Opioid Settlement Fund

In 2021, Massachusetts secured vital settlement funds from pharmaceutical companies, earmarked to address the opioid crisis and its repercussions. The Commonwealth is committed to allocating these resources to communities annually until 2038, with an anticipated total of $1 billion from settlements. Lynn will receive a minimum of 3.3 million over the next 15 years, including $826,012.06 for fiscal year 2023 and 2024 to date.
