Federal Policy Efforts (State-specific)

Englewood Community Development Corporation

Englewood Community Development Corporation (ECDC) will use HFFI funds for the Farm 365 Expansion Project to expand the existing food production business, the Farm 365, in the Near Eastside area of Indianapolis, Indiana, to increase distribution and consumption of fresh healthy affordable food. Farm 365 is expanding its business into a larger facility, which will be utilized for an urban indoor farm with new growing, production, packaging, and office space. The CED grant will allow ECDC to purchase LED lighting and hydroponic growing systems for the new facility and to fund the construction of the growing system and equipment. You can find more information here.
