Community Reinvestment

The Cannabis Social Equity Program requires adult-use cannabis businesses to submit plans describing how they intend to support and reinvest in communities aligned with the equity program in the City of Long Beach. The process to review, approve and track community reinvestment plans will be overseen by the Office of Equity.

More information about community reinvestment plan requirements will be coming soon.

Fresh Start Program

The Fresh Start Program is an exciting and innovative partnership between the Office of the City Prosecutor and the Department of Health’s Office of Equity and Safe Long Beach Violence Prevention teams. The Fresh Start Program is designed to assist individuals who are residents of Long Beach with expungement and reclassification support, specifically those residents who qualify for legal relief under Proposition 64 (California’s Marijuana Legalization Initiative). The Fresh Start Program will offer residents coordinated and expedited expungement and reclassification assistance and support.

More details about the Fresh Start Program as well as future Fresh Start workshop dates and client assistance will be coming soon.
