Beltrami County Public Health

Opioid Steering Committee

Governor Tim Walz signed a bill that directs how the state will spend the opioid lawsuit settlement dollars. Beltrami County Public Health, as the Chief Strategists, are committed to preventing and reducing the negative impacts associated with opioid misuse, opioid use disorder, and overdose deaths. To determine how to prioritize use of these funds, Beltrami Health & Human Services in collaboration with the Beltrami Sheriff’s Office has established a steering committee to ensure community involvement.

This committee serves to prioritize use of settlement funds and the purpose is to advise/offer guidance on directing settlement funds across broad categories including prevention, criminal justice, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction. The steering committee will include but are not limited to citizens with professional or lived experiences, county staff, and city staff.
