Available Funding

Available Funding is a searchable database of Healthy Food Financing Funds and other Grants, Loans and Incentives that can be used to finance a variety of healthy food access projects. The database is organized in three parts: current, ongoing, and past funding opportunities.  Ongoing opportunities do not have specific deadlines.  You can submit applications at any time.  Researching funding opportunities whose deadlines have passed can be very useful.  Many funders, especially the federal government, renew funding opportunities annually.

You will find the following information in the database:

  • Name of the Opportunity (Clicking on the name of the funding opportunity will take you to a detailed description that includes award size, if available; targeted geography; and a link to more information).
  • Funder Type (e.g., CDFI, Corporate, Federal Government, Multi-Funder Partnership, State and Local Government)
  • Due Date, if applicable


The database is searchable by:

  • Opportunity Type which is organized by Grants, Grants & Loans, Healthy Food Financing, Healthy Food Incentives, Healthy Food Research, HFFI, Incentives, and Loans & Loan Guarantees.
  • Geography – which is organized by National and States
