OREGON (PORTLAND)

Social Equity & Educational Development (SEED) Grant Fund

Oregon currently does not have a statewide social equity program. Portland’s Social Equity & Educational Development (SEED) Grant Fund is the first program in the United States to integrate equity programming within a cannabis regulatory office. In alignment with the Ballot Measure 26-180 passed in 2016, the SEED Grant Fund prioritizes Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and women led/owned small business initiatives and/or projects, programs or services that support economic and educational development of Black and brown communities, which were most impacted by cannabis prohibition.
