Community Reinvestment Grant Solicitation and Application Released

Earlier this week, the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) released the application for the first round of the California Community Reinvestment Grants (CalCRG). Recall, these funds from Proposition 64 (Adult Use of Marijuana Act) are directed to local health departments and community-based organizations to provide grants to support activities such as job placement, system navigation services, and linkages to medical care, for communities disproportionately affected by past federal and state drug policies. A total of $9.6 million is available for FY 2018-19, and awardees will have two years (August 2019-July 2021) to expend funds. Applications are due to GO-Biz on Thursday, May 16, and more information on the grant solicitation can be found here.
