How much money does the State receive from the Tobacco Master Settlement?

Indiana receives an annual payment of approximately $130 million from the Tobacco Master Settlement, although the figure varies each year; however, ongoing litigation and arbitration threatens to significantly reduce the annual payment to Indiana. This payment is distributed to the Indiana State Department of Health, the Family and Social Services Administration, the Attorney General’s office, and various other programs. These agencies use the funding for a variety of programs such as tobacco use prevention, children’s healthcare, and rural economic development.
