Board of State and Community Corrections Seeking Members to Serve on Cannabis Public Health & Safety Grant Committee
August 8, 2019
The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is recruiting members to serve on a new Executive Steering Committee (ESC) for the Proposition 64 Public Health & Safety Grant Program (Prop 64 PH&S Grant Program).
Statements of Interest for this ESC membership must be submitted by 5:00 PM, Friday, August 23. If you are interested in serving on the Prop 64 PH&S Grant Program ESC, please review these BSCC instructions http://www.bscc.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/Prop-64-ESC-recruitment.pdf and apply.
In November 2016, Proposition 64 was passed by the voters of California. This Act, known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act, legalized the use of cannabis for those over the age of 21 and established laws to regulate the cultivation, distribution, sale, and use of cannabis. Per Revenue & Taxation Code, § 34019, subd. (f)(3)(C), the BSCC will provide grant funds to local governments to assist with law enforcement, fire protection, or other local programs addressing public health and safety associated with the implementation of the Act.
Individuals interested in serving on the ESC should be prepared to attend several all-day meetings (dates TBD) to develop a Request for Proposals (RFP), read and score proposals submitted for this grant program, and produce award recommendations for BSCC Board approval.
*Note: Prior experience on an ESC is not required. If you have any questions about this recruitment please email BSCC Field Representative, Helene Zentner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
