Bureau of Cannabis Control Now Accepting Applications for Local Equity Grant Funding

August 12, 2019
The Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) recently announced the availability of funding authorized by the California Cannabis Equity Act of 2018 (Equity Act).
 
Established by SB 1294, BCC was appropriated $10 million to award to cities and counties assisting equity applicants and licensees through their local equity programs focusing on inclusion and support of persons in the cannabis industry who were negatively or disproportionately impacted by cannabis prohibition.
 
To apply for grant funding, a local jurisdiction must submit an application and the required documentation electronically through an online portal between July 31 and Aug. 30, 2019. Additional information about the equity grant guidelines and process can be found on the BCC website
