This Request for Grant Applications (RGA) RGA-2023-DBH-01-OPIOI: Opioid Abatement Programs is published by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, on behalf of the Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission, to solicit grant applications from organizations for funding for qualifying opioid abatement projects through the Opioid Abatement Trust Fund established pursuant to RSA 126-A:83-86.


Distribution of Funds

As part of the settlement process, the Attorney General sent a letter to 28 New Hampshire subdivisions that filed their own opioid lawsuits against these defendants. The letter was also sent to the 18 subdivisions identified by the defendants as primary non-litigating subdivisions. The letter notifies these cities and towns of the State’s intention to join the Settlement and invites them to join the settlement in order to maximize the amount paid to the State.
