Overview

Reinvestment Fund's 2014 LSA analysis is an update to the 2011 study, Searching for Markets: The Geography of Inequitable Access to Healthy and Affordable Foods in the United States, funded by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s CDFI Fund through the Opportunity Finance Network. Reinvestment Fund undertook the 2014 update when our lending department observed that there were enough changes since the 2011 study (i.e., stores had opened and closed) that it was no longer sufficient for making financing decisions.
