Subject: Fresh Food Financing Initiative
In the near future we plan on introducing a bill to establish the Fresh Food Financing Initiative through the Department of Community and Economic Development.
The Fresh Food Financing Initiative is aimed at providing financing for grocery stores and other health food retail projects in low or moderate income and underserved communities. The initiative will be funded with an annual appropriation and will also be able to accept donations and federal dollars.
Grants or low interest loans will be available to grocery stores and other food retail projects to improve the availability of quality fresh produce and to promote local agricultural products throughout the commonwealth.
Please join us in sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as SB1100
