Eligible subdivisions participating in the national opioid settlements are required to submit an annual report to the state Department of Human Services (DHS) by September 1.
As part of the nationwide opioid settlements, eligible New Jersey subdivisions are required to submit an annual report to the state by September 1 each year, detailing where and how opioid abatement funds were spent, if at all.
To access the reporting tool and to complete the required annual reporting, eligible municipalities should contact their County Administrators. If your municipality has not yet expended the funds you are still required to complete the report, indicating as much where necessary.
Additional information, including an instructional video on the reporting tool, can be found on the DHS website. Questions regarding the reporting tool, or about the settlement in general, should be directed to your County Administrator or to the DHS at OpioidSettlement@dhs.nj.gov. Also, please feel free to reach out to the League for assistance or more information.
