State and Local
Across the country state and local city governments are enacting legislation and policies similar to the federal Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) to support healthy food retail projects, revitalize communities and improve access to healthy food in low-income underserved communities. These programs are improving health and revitalizing communities by creating jobs and serving as anchors to other commercial development, which increases retail activity, employment rates, and property values in the surrounding neighborhoods.
