Sacramento Grow Green: Cannabis Social Equity Program

As part of the City of Sacramento’s Cannabis Opportunity Reinvestment and Equity (CORE) effort, the Sacramento Grow Green program provides training and support to individuals and communities who are facing barriers when trying to enter the cannabis industry due to the historical disparate enforcement of cannabis crimes.

Our goal is to create pathways for diverse communities to be able to establish new cannabis businesses, have support during the transition of existing cannabis businesses into the legal market, and help connect individuals to job opportunities within the industry.  The program offers the training, mentorship, and support necessary to ensure the emerging cannabis market is accessible to all.
