How the National Fund Manager Works

As the National Fund Manager, Reinvestment Fund is responsible for providing funds and technical assistance to eligible retailers. It is also responsible for working with USDA to leverage private capital and channel capital to fund eligible projects that will improve access to fresh, healthy foods in under-served rural and urban areas.

IMPROVING ACCESS

The National Fund Manager, chosen by USDA, leverages private capital, provides financial and technical assistance to regional, state and local partnerships, and channels capital to fund eligible projects that will improve access to fresh, healthy foods in underserved rural and urban areas.
