NC Payment Schedule Dashboard

This dashboard provides the schedule of estimated payments (subject to change) for each of the North Carolina counties and cities receiving payments from the national opioid settlements. The estimated payment amounts were provided by the North Carolina Department of Justice (NC DOJ) based on the most recent information available to NC DOJ.

Note that some municipalities have directed their opioid settlement funds to the counties where they are located, including Cary (starting in FY 22-23), Charlotte (starting in FY 23-24), Concord (starting in FY 23-24), Gastonia (starting in FY 22-23), Hickory (starting in FY 24-25), and Raleigh (starting in FY 22-23).  The estimated payments to Burke, Cabarrus, Caldwell, Catawba, Chatham, Durham, Gaston, Mecklenburg, and Wake Counties have increased to reflect this.

When are payments disbursed? In FY 23-24, approximately 24% of each local government’s total fiscal year payment was disbursed in late July and early August 2023, approximately 3% was disbursed in November 2023, approximately 41% was disbursed in February 2024, approximately 7% was disbursed in March 2024, and the remaining 25% will be disbursed in April 2024. The timing of payments in later fiscal years will be different.

Use the dashboard below to view the anticipated fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) payments for each local government and the state of NC. (Note that the FY 22-23 payments include amounts received in May-June of 2022, at the tail end of the prior fiscal year.)
