The Local Jurisdiction Assistance Grant Program directs funds support areas with the largest populations of provisional cannabis licenses to transition into annual licensure by helping clear application backlogs. On Thursday, the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) awarded nearly $100 million in local assistance grants to 17 cities and counties, including the counties of Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Monterey, Nevada, Sonoma, and Trinity. “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,” said DCC Director Nicole Elliott.
