Community Reinvestment Grants Program workshop dates

Community Reinvestment Grants Program workshop dates
October 4, 2018 Public Health Advocates

The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GOBiz) has announced the dates, locations and times for a series of workshops on the California Community Reinvestment Grants (CCRG) program. In the workshops, the GOBiz staff will share their thinking on how to structure the grant program and will solicit input.

The funding source for the CCRG program is state marijuana tax revenues. The program will grow by $10 million each year until it reaches $50 million. This new grant program represents a rare opportunity for grassroots organizations that work with the formerly incarcerated, system-impacted adults and young people, and families in trauma-impacted neighborhoods to access a stable, public funding stream. The program will fund services in the areas of mental health, job placement, legal services, substance abuse treatment, systems navigation, and linkages to medical care.
