Restoring and developing local and regional food systems requires that the unique needs of individual communities be taken into account. Targeted tools – such as tax increment financing (TIF), property assessed clean energy (PACE), and special assessment districts – address specific geographic areas and difficult-to-finance sectors within a community. This installment of the CDFA Food Systems Finance Webinar Series will highlight unique financing structures that drive food systems investment within a geographic footprint.
