Technical Assistance

Technical Assistance (TA) will be available to eligible organizations that are planning a food retail or enterprise project that aligns with the goals of America’s Healthy Food Financing Initiative.

TA will be provided to eligible organizations that are in an early stage or planning phase of a food retail or food retail supply chain enterprise project. TA provides expert guidance that can further clarify and advance a project that supports HFFI goals and priorities. TA resources may include support with capacity building, identification of food access needs and potential interventions, project planning, market studies, feasibility studies, business planning, financial modeling, appraisals, and community or customer engagement.

Eligible applicants to the Targeted Small Grants Program that are not selected for funding may be selected to apply for or receive TA.

If you’re interested in TA, please submit a 2021 HFFI Letter of Interest via our online portal and indicate that you are interested in TA only when prompted in the questionnaire.
