Seeking your assistance- Community Reinvestment and Repair Fund
Honorable Members of the Maryland General Assembly,
During the 2023 legislative session, the Maryland General Assembly passed the Cannabis Reform Act. This legislation legalized adult-use cannabis and established the Community Reinvestment and Repair Fund, which will direct a percentage of tax revenue obtained from adult-use cannabis sales to support communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the enforcement of cannabis prohibition. Each county, along with Baltimore City, has the responsibility to develop its own process for utilizing the allocated funds.
In adherence to the Cannabis Reform Act, the Office of Social Equity is seeking public input regarding potential uses of the Community Reinvestment and Repair Fund.
We ask that you please share this survey with your contacts, constituents, and colleagues to help us reach as many Maryland residents as possible. We also have included a flyer with a QR code that can be shared with your networks.
Also, we invite you to participate in our survey, which will help inform the future allocation of these funds within your districts. Your insights and ideas are invaluable in ensuring that the resources are directed where they can make the most meaningful impact.
The survey can be found here. We ask that the survey be completed by Friday, November 24, 2023.
The Office of Social Equity will publish a review of the input received on or before December 15, 2023. It is our hope that this input will be useful to local jurisdictions as they develop their funding allocation processes.
