Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi (NHBP) Tribal Chairperson Jamie Stuck has been appointed as a member of the Michigan Opioid Advisory Commission by Senate Majority Leader Winnie Brinks (D-Grand Rapids).

Key Points:

    • The commission was established in 2022 by Public Act 84.
    • It is a state-designated entity that advises the legislature on funding, policy and strategic planning concerning the use and management of state opioid settlement funds.
    • Chairperson Stuck will be the voice for the 12 Federally Recognized Tribes of Michigan and provide recommendations on how the funds should be distributed to appropriately serve the unique needs of Tribes across Michigan.
    • The state of Michigan is slated to receive nearly $800 million from the opioid settlement over the next 18 years. 50% will be distributed directly to county, city, and township governments. The remaining 50% will be distributed to the state government’s specially designated fund.

NHBP is a federally recognized Tribal government with more than 1,600 enrolled Tribal Members. It’s located at The Pine Creek Indian Reservation near Athens, Michigan.
