Cannabis Social Equity Program

In April of 2021, the City of Los Angeles established the Social Equity Entrepreneur Development Grant Program (SEED) Grant Program

The SEED Grant Program utilizes state funding from the Cannabis Equity Grant for Local Jurisdictions (CEG grants) to provide financial assistance to verified Social Equity Individual Applicants.

To date, the City of Los Angeles has dedicated $6 million towards the SEED Grant Program through funds made available through 2019 and 2020 California CEG Grant awards. SEED is administered in partnership with Elevate Impact LA
