  • Tina Castro, Charles Fields, and Marion Standish, The California Endowment
  • Judi Kende and Katie Scallon, The Low Income Investment Fund


Building on Pennsylvania’s well-established Fresh Food Financing Initiative and the federal government’s recently launched Healthy Food Financing Initiative, California and New York have developed similar programs in their own states to offer tax credits, below-market rate loans, loan guarantees, and grants to organizations providing healthy foods to under served communities.

On this webinar, participants learned about how the California and New York Initiatives got started, the varying roles of foundations and the state governments, progress made so far, and recommendations for starting a similar initiative in their own state.
