Opioid Settlement Funding


Due to the extensive damage and loss of life caused by the opioid crisis that was brought on by the unethical and over-prescribing of opioid medications, the state of Tennessee will be receiving over $1 billion over the next 18 years in settlement funds from several large corporations. Hickman County has been allocated a portion of these funds, which will be received in annual payments. The County Mayor has established the Hickman County Opioid Settlement Board to oversee the spending of these funds to ensure they are used to remediate the opioid crisis and save lives. The Board will invite community organizations to apply for these funds annually.

Availability of Funds

The selection process for funding will utilize a competitive process and the number of awards will be dependent on the amount of funds available for annual allocation. The amount of funds available, dates of application submissions and awards will differ annually. The amount of funds available for the 2024 funding cycle is $418,000.00 and aplications will be accepted between July 1st and August 31st, 2024. Required reading for all applicants: Hickman County Opioid Funding Guidelines.
