Oct 01, 2021

SACRAMENTO, CA – The recently-established Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) today unveiled guidelines and application requirements for a $100 million Local Jurisdiction Assistance Grant Program. The program, proposed by Governor Newsom in the 2021-2022 budget and passed by the Legislature, provides funding for local jurisdictions to aid in transitioning high numbers of provisional cannabis licenses into annual licenses.

The grant funding is intended to be used towards supporting local governments in processing substantial workloads associated with transitioning a significant number of businesses into the regulated market, creating a more streamlined local licensing process and facilitating the completion of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements. Additional funding is available for jurisdictions with equity programs to further support equity provisional licensees’ pathways to annual licensure.
