Investing in MFTP

The Massachusetts Food Trust Program is a state-funded initiative meant to bring capital into the Commonwealth’s food sector in underserved areas. This financing structure will support projects that increase access to healthy food, support local farmers and agriculture, and reach underserved areas throughout the Commonwealth. A key factor for this program to be successful is that the $1 million initial grant from the Baker-Polito Administration can help leverage other sources of capital. This will grow funding available and help to meet the large demand for eligible projects.
