Marijuana Impact Grant

In November 2015, Colorado voters approved a ballot measure that allows taxes collected from the sale of recreational marijuana to be used to fund several statewide programs, including a Local Government Marijuana Impact Grant Program. The program will receive $1 million dollars annually to provide grants to eligible local governments impacted by retail marijuana sales. Grant awards limits are not capped and multi-year projects will be accepted. 



Eligibility is determined in CRS 24-32-117(1)(c) and is clarified in the Marijuana Impact Program Eligibility Checklist. Local governments are responsible for confirming their eligibility to the program. Please use the tool below to determine if your city or county is eligible. Denver and Broomfield city and county are considered counties only for search purposes.
