Sign our petition, write to our Supervisors, and submit your idea

The Santa Barbara County Supervisors need to know why access to higher education is a crisis in our community and how the Basic Needs Grant Program can be a solution. Fill out the information below to sign our petition in support of our proposal. Submit a comment about your ideas on why cannabis tax dollars should be used to address college affordability.


I support expanding college affordability to all Santa Barbara County college students by creating a Basic Needs Grant Program. I recognize the dire need to address student homelessness, skyrocketing tuition costs, crippling debt, and student food insecurity in our county’s colleges and universities. These problems deserve immediate action.

Creating the Basic Needs Grant Program with tax dollars from responsibly cultivated cannabis can and should be used as a solution to our community crisis. All people deserve true access to higher education free from hunger and homelessness. The Santa Barbara County Supervisors can make this a reality by creating the Basic Needs Grant Program.
