National Opioid Settlement Community Meeting: Focus on Youth
About This Event
Wake County and the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 29, to discuss how National Opioid Settlement funding can be used to help youth in our community. Speakers will include North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein and Wake County Board of Commissioners Chair Sig Hutchinson.
In September, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved the county’s Opioid Settlement Funding Plan, which will put $4.85 million toward four key initiatives to tackle the opioid crisis through June 2024. It’s the initial phase of a plan that will invest a total of $36.1 million into fighting the opioid epidemic over the next 18 years. You can learn more about the county's plan here.
This meeting will continue the conversation on how the county can best use its funds to tackle the crisis and focus on the opportunities available to protect and support our youth.
