Grant Opportunities

In 2021, we are offering funding through a Targeted Small Grants Program (TSG Program). At least $4 million will be available for grants for innovative fresh food retail and food system enterprises that seek to improve access to healthy food in underserved areas.

Grants will range from $20,000 to $200,000.

Grants could assist projects with a variety of aspects of retail or enterprise development, renovation, and expansion. The grants will be one-time investments of capital into a food retail or food enterprise project in order to address higher costs and initial barriers to entry in underserved areas across the country.

An informational webinar was held that included a walk-through of how to apply online using the grants portal, as well as an overview of information about the HFFI Targeted Small Grants program opportunity and application. A recording of the webinar is available at:
