Up to $94 million will be coming to the Hudson Valley to help communities suffering from the deadly effects of opioids.
It's all part of Attorney General Letitia James' "Heal New York" tour, where she will deliver up to $1.5 billion to combat the opioid epidemic.
The AG's tour stops at Saint Vincent's Hospital in Harrison Tuesday morning as she addresses her efforts for the Hudson Valley.
"2020 was the deadliest year for overdoses that our country has experienced and it didn't have to be this way. And that's why I made a promise to those families over open caskets that we would hold Big Pharma accountable and bring back funds to help our state," said James.
Westchester County will be receiving the most of all Hudson Valley counties, with $10 to $18 million being spent on the county's opioid crisis.
