Cannabis Tax Fund Grant Program Overview


With the passage of Proposition 64, The Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use Marijuana Act (AUMA), in 2016 California voters mandated the state set aside funding for the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to disperse 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.

It is the intent of the CHP to enhance traffic safety by administering AUMA grants 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.

This grant program marks an important step forward in the effort to address the following goals and objectives: 

  • Reduce the number of crashes by impaired drivers
  • Increase public awareness related to the dangers of impaired driving
  • Improve highway safety
