Proposals Accepted for State Security Grant Program – Los Angeles Sentinel | Los Angeles Sentinel


There are three state-run Prop 64 grant programs that create nonprofit funding opportunities in the area of ​​youth development. The Public Health and Safety Grant administered by the Board of State and Community Corrections is now accepting proposals for Cohort 3.

The deadline to apply for this grant is December 2 at 5:00 p.m. Local governments that have legal dispensaries and some form of cannabis cultivation operating within their jurisdiction are eligible. Please see additional details on this grant below:

A unique feature of this grant is that nonprofits cannot apply directly for this grant and should instead partner with an eligible LPA (lead public agency) such as the city, county, or other eligible agencies. .

To access these funds for youth development work, you must hire your city or county staff and work with them on the application. The local government will contract with your agency for youth development work. See the instruction packet for more information. Applicants may request a maximum of $3,000,000 to be spent over 5 years.

The BSCC will host a virtual bidders conference on Wednesday, November 9. The purpose of a bidders conference is to answer technical questions from potential bidders (candidates) and to clarify RFP instructions. The BSCC asks those planning to attend RSVP (see page 3 of the instruction packet).
