MCRCD Receives $1.38 Million for Sustainable Cannabis

MCRCD is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded funds through CDFW’s first round of Cannabis Restoration Grant Program’s Qualified Cultivator Funding Opportunity, one of only two applicants statewide. MCRCD will receive $1,388,181 for water conservation projects in the South Fork Eel River Watershed. The funds will focus on three cannabis cultivation sites and will be used to design and install three rainwater collection systems, perform irrigation infrastructure upgrades, develop and implement an invasive species management plan, install native, pollinator-friendly plants and prepare site-specific California Environmental Quality Act documentation required for cannabis cultivators. Thank you, The Mendocino Voice for your fantastic article about the program.
