The application deadline is February 22, 2022.
Businesses and non-profit entities seeking to expand access to fresh food in low-income, low-access communities are encouraged to apply for the second round of the Virginia Food Access Investment Fund (VFAIF). With funding awards ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, VFAIF grants can be used to support business development, construction, rehabilitation, equipment upgrades, or expansion of grocery stores, small food retailers, or innovative food retail projects that improve food security in low-income, low access communities.
