Community Reinvestment Grants Program Application Review Extended
The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) announced this week that they are extending the review of all applications submitted for the California Community Reinvestment Grants program. Recall that this funding from Proposition 64 (Adult Use of Marijuana Act) is 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.
GO-Biz had originally anticipated announcing grant awards by July 31, 2019, but have extended that to August 31, 2019, and have revised the grant term to September 1, 2019, through August 31, 2021. Additional information from GO-Biz is available here.
