Intent of the Intervention
The Pennsylvania Fresh Food Financing Initiative (FFFI) is a practice-tested policy-level intervention designed to increase access to affordable, quality healthful foods in underserved areas of the state. The program provides critical one-time loans and grants for the development, expansion or renovation of fresh food retail establishments, such as supermarkets or grocery stores. The FFFI also creates steady jobs for community members living in economically distressed areas.
FFFI is a community-level policy and environmental-change intervention.
