The Los Angeles Department of Cannabis Regulation (DCR) issued a request for qualifications as it searches for consultants to help shape what is thought to be the largest municipal marijuana social equity program in the nation.
The DCR is currently prevetting applicants for the social equity program to ensure that those awarded licenses meet certain criteria. That process began May 28 and lasts until July 29.
Between now and then, the DCR hopes to “exponentially expand business support through the use of on-call consultants,” according to the release.
The deadline for any bids to be submitted to the DCR is July 12 at 2 p.m. PT.
Contracts will be awarded beginning around Aug. 1.
