The purpose of the Cannabis Tax Fund Grant Program (CTFGP) is to disperse grant funds from The Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use Marijuana Act (AUMA) to local governments and qualified nonprofit organizations for the education, prevention, and enforcement of impaired driving laws pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code Section 34019.
With the passage of Proposition 64, The AUMA, in 2016 California voters mandated the state set aside funding for the California Highway Patrol (CHP). It is the intent of the CHP to enhance traffic safety by administering AUMA grant funds to educate the public regarding the dangers of impaired driving, fund efforts to remove impaired drivers from the roadway, and advance research into impaired driving issues.
Education projects shall focus on local community-based activities that shift public perspectives and expand the number of activities utilized to help mitigate alcohol and drug-impaired driving. Projects should showcase unique approaches that educate local communities on impaired driving laws, while highlighting the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Innovative, community-based approaches to education and prevention may include the following project activities: Educational events (ex: high school education, college education, community venues, festivals, and concerts), educational material distribution (bars, dispensaries); educational activities with interactive, hands-on learning tools; and campaigns featuring radio advertisements, social media, billboards, video advertisements, and messaging to educate and increase awareness of impaired driving.
Grant applications shall be submitted through the online Grant Management System (GMS). Applications will be reviewed and approved through the GMS. Notification of awards will be sent to the awarded grantees electronically.
Eligible cost categories include: Personnel, Travel, Equipment, Consultants/Contracts, and Other Direct Costs.
