On May 14th, the Mecosta County Board of Commissioners established procedures for local nonprofit organizations to request funding from the state's Cannabis Excise Tax reimbursement.

The board approved an application form and outlined a process for nonprofits to request funding, which is now available on the county's website.

"The Mecosta County Board of Commissioners has directed me to place an application form for their use in allocating some of the Cannabis Excise Tax funds received from the state," stated County Administrator Paul Bullock in a news release. "The application is now posted on our website. The board will accept funding applications until June 14th."

Following the June 14th deadline, the board will review all submitted applications and schedule follow-up interviews with organizations being considered for funding, Bullock added.

In March, Mecosta County was notified of the state Fiscal Year 2023 adult-use recreational cannabis payments, as part of the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act. The county is set to receive $886,295, approximately $59,000 for each of the 15 licensed retail establishments within its jurisdiction.

Interested organizations can complete an application online at or print and mail the application to Mecosta County Board of Commissioners, 400 Elm Street, Big Rapids, MI 49307.
