Local Governments Receive $100 Million in Cannabis Assistance Grants

Seventeen cities and counties have received a total of $100 million in state funds to help transition local cannabis businesses to the legal market. This is part of a state grant program announced by the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) in October.

The recipients have the highest number of provisional licenses in the state. The funds will help get those cannabis businesses fully licensed by providing for additional staffing, IT systems, and the completion of environmental assessments.

Additionally, “the local jurisdictions receiving grants incorporated innovative approaches to meet the specific needs of their license communities, which is exactly what we were hoping for when developing this program,” said DCC Director Nicole Elliott. “Significant funding is being directed to process improvements and environmental assessments, both of which will help the state and local governments achieve short- and long-term goals.”
