Across the country, state, and local governments are enacting legislation and policies similar to the federal HFFI program to support healthy food retail projects, revitalize communities and improve access to healthy food in low-income underserved communities. In many places, the federal and state programs work together to complement and enhance healthy food access in a region. Check out this overview of Healthy Food Financing Programs Across the Country.
