Opportunity Finance Network (HFFI)
Opportunity Finance Network is using its federal Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) grant to make capital available to CDFIs focused on increasing access to affordable healthy foods in low‐income neighborhoods. OFN is financing CDFIs that are ramping up their capacity to address food access issues. OFN will target CDFIs seeking to finance projects in their communities that promote healthy food options, with an emphasis on mid‐tier food chain enterprises and retail outlets serving food deserts. This includes CDFIs with community facility or small business lending expertise with skills that are transferable to healthy food project lending.
