One Week Left: Cannabis Grant Program Closes April 28
April 20, 2023
There is one week left to apply for the Department of Cannabis Control‘s (DCC) Local Retail Access Grant Program. Counties that currently do not have a cannabis retail licensing program, but have plans to develop one, are eligible to receive grant funding. This funding is particularly important as last year the Governor signed in to law SB 1186, which requires all jurisdictions to allow delivery of medicinal cannabis starting January 1, 2024.
The Retail Access Grant Program will make $20 million available to local governments to be used for environmental reviews, permitting expenses, and personnel costs. Funding will be distributed in two phases with awards for the first phase being announced by June 20, 2023. Applications are due by April 28, 2023. More information can be found in the grant guidelines.
