Spending guidelines: A document called Ohio Abatement Strategies outlines how settlement money can be spent. The nine-page document can be found here.
Local government shares: Local governments will share 30% of the opioid settlement.

More than 2,000 local Ohio governments will get opioid settlement money. The percentage of the local share each government will receive can be found here.
One Ohio Regional Allocations: The non-profit (but not yet formed) One Ohio Foundation will get 55% of settlement money and spend it roughly equitably — adjusted for population, overdose deaths and other factors — in 19 regions. The share of settlement money expected to be spent in each region can be found here.
