FAQ's


How does the selection process work?

Each applicant must demonstrate financial need and make a purchase at least 120 days prior to the application deadline. All eligible applicants for an application period are then randomly assigned a queue number, which is used to determine their place on the wait list.

Previous awardees must wait one year after the end of their award period before reapplying. This means that someone selected in this round that ends in December (June) would have to wait until November (May) of the following year to reapply.

How do I know if I meet the financial requirement?

We use federal poverty standards as a guide, but there are no strict cut-offs. We look at the totality of evidence to help make this determination.

This totality includes tax returns and proof of participation in a need-based government program (i.e., SNAP or Medicaid)

SSI and SSDI are not need based programs

If you are not part of a need-based program, please provide other forms of proof and an explanation of how the documentation demonstrates proof of financial need.

How long does each award cycle last?

There are two 6-month cycles each year: July 1-December 31 + January 1-June 30.

Applications are accepted from May 1-31, and from November 1-30.

How much will I get if I am selected?

Awardees are granted $240 of credit every month. Credit must be used in full each month and will not roll over into the next month.

Will the donated cannabis be charged against medical patients’ 2.5oz limit?

Yes. This Patients purchasing product and all sales will be tracked just as they are for all other purchases.

If my card expires while I am in the Cannabis Compassion Program, will I still receive free product?

No. Awardees must show a valid Illinois medical cannabis card and a valid State ID to enter the dispensary to remain in the program.
