Capitalizing Healthy Food Retail Initiatives

Part of training materials prepared for the CDFI Fund and the Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) for their Financing Healthy Food Options initiative. The initiative was designed to build the CDFI industry’s capacity to finance projects that increase healthy food options in underserved communities. Based on Reinvestment Fund’s healthy food financing experience, we developed a curriculum for training workshops and created an implementation handbook advising CDFIs how to underwrite supermarkets and capitalize such initiatives.
