Prohibition Hurts Microgrants are here!
Prohibition hurts our communities in numerous and often unseen ways. Many of those impacts affect people's ability to seek housing, jobs, insurance and so much more that it is hard to imagine unless you've experienced criminalization.
Defending a single cannabis charge can cost $2,000 - $20,000.
This is just attorney fees needed to get a pre-trial deal and doesn’t include trial costs, court fines, travel expenses, loss of work, childcare, mental health / therapy, or future fiscal, housing and employment impacts.
Have you or someone you love been arrested, charged or incarcerated for cannabis? This is for you.
Please apply here before April 30. There are at least 5 microgrants available.
WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR? Our Individual Eligibility Priorities:
- Live in Appalachian county or any county in the Central and Southern Appalachian states of AL, GA, KY, MS, NC, SC, TN, VA and WV. (no proof of address or mailing address needed)
