VS attorney Michelle Bodian discusses the hemp industry's environmental challenges and opportunities in this on-demand CLE from the INCBA
Government grants, contracts, and loans can be an important source of funding. There are many state and federal programs for which hemp businesses are eligible, as well as state programs for marijuana businesses. VS is well-positioned to help your business identify these opportunities and navigate the complex processes they typically entail. We are also uniquely qualified to assist state and local governments in developing innovative new opportunities, procedures and policies.
Application and bidding processes are often complicated and time-intensive. Our attorneys and technical writers can guide you through them from start to finish and ensure the information you provide is accurate and compliant with all applicable laws and regulations (including those that are cannabis-related). They can also assist in the event you believe a contract was improperly awarded by a government agency.
Our team members have extensive experience applying for government grants and contracts, as well as previous public sector experience drafting and awarding them. We have helped businesses excel in several of the most competitive cannabis-related application processes in the country. We know what it takes to complete applications correctly and on deadline, as well as what it takes to distinguish them and maximize the likelihood of success.
