Many counties around the state are expected to receive funding allocations following the multi-billion dollar settlement of national opioid lawsuits last year.

Officials say that most of the state's settlement funds will be allocated to local counties and cities around the state.

Minnesota is expected to received around $300 million related to settlement agreements with pharmaceutical distributors McKesson, Cardinal Health, and AmerisourceBergen, and opioid manufacturer Johnson & Johnson.

There reportedly is $26 billion that will be shared through the multi-state agreement. Local counties and cities had to formally sign-on to receive settlement dollars.
