About Reinvestment Fund

Reinvestment Fund is a national mission-driven financial institution that creates opportunity for underserved people and places through partnerships. It marshals the capital, analytics, and expertise necessary to build strong, healthy, and more equitable communities.

Reinvestment Fund uses analytical and financial tools to support high-quality grocery stores, affordable housing, schools and health centers for communities that need better access—creating anchors that attract investment over the long term and help families lead healthier, more productive lives.

Beginning with the Pennsylvania Fresh Food Financing Initiative (FFFI) in 2004, Reinvestment Fund has developed a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to improving the food landscape for underserved communities. Since that time, it has provided more than $370 million in grants and loans to healthy food projects. Reinvestment Fund also founded and manages ReFresh, a capacity-building initiative that is comprised of CDFI partners across the country, who are among the largest national providers of healthy food financing.

In 2017, Reinvestment Fund was appointed by the USDA to serve as the National Fund Manager (NFM) for HFFI at the USDA.
