Kansas has reached multiple settlements with a major pharmaceutical companies, distributors and related firms as part of the state’s ongoing efforts to bring accountability to those that fueled the opioid-addiction crisis and to provide funds to support addiction services.
Kansas legislators have approved Attorney General Schmidt’s proposal to ensure funding recovered through these settlements is used to address addiction and help ensure services are provided throughout the state. Funding will be available through a grant review board created by the statute. State agencies, local governments and not-for-profit entities may seek funding for addiction treatment and abatement through the board, which is currently being formed.
More information will be posted to this web page as it becomes available.
