Proposition 64 Public Health & Safety Grant Program

Revenue and Taxation Code, Section 34019, subd. (f)(3)(C) states the BSCC will provide grant funds to local governments that assist with law enforcement, fire protection, or other local programming to address public health and safety associated with the implementation of the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

In 2019, language in the RTC prohibited the BSCC from making grants to any local governments that have banned all indoor and outdoor cultivation, including personal cultivation, or retail sale of marijuana or marijuana products.

However, in 2020 with the passage of Assembly Bill (AB) 1872, eligibility for Proposition 64 Public Health & Safety (Prop 64 PH&S) Grant funding solicitations have been broadened. Revenue and Taxation Code (RTC), Section 34019, subd. (f)(3)(C) now allows local governments to apply for this funding through the BSCC if they do not ban both indoor and outdoor commercial cannabis cultivation, or ban retail sale of cannabis or cannabis products pursuant to Section 26200 of the Business and Professions Code or as otherwise provided by law.

 

Prop 64 PH&S Grant Program Cohort 2:

At the April 8, 2021 BSCC Board meeting, 23 jurisdictions were awarded, in total, over $21 million in second round Prop 64 PH&S Grant funding. The 3-year grant service period for Cohort 2 begins May 1, 2021 and will end April 30, 2024. Brief summaries of the projects are located hereopens PDF file .
