Project Trellis

The purpose of Project Trellis is, in part, to bolster the cannabis industry, and protect future cannabis excise tax revenues by providing services to populations and communities in Humboldt who were adversely affected by the criminalization of cannabis, to develop a framework for supportive programs designed to sustain and grow Humboldt’s cannabis industry, and to assist cannabis businesses as they work to overcome the financial and logistical challenges of coming into compliance.

Funding for the program will come from local cannabis excise tax revenues, cannabis fines and fees, and state funding via SB 1294.
