Fresh Food Access Fund 

The City of Milwaukee is excited to announce a new grant fund focusing on health food access in our communities. The Fresh Food Access Fund (FFAF) provides financial support to activities that increase fresh food access and healthy food choices in underserved communities. FFAF is available to for-profit and not-for-profit businesses aligned with the goal of the fund.

Please see the FFAF program guidelines for eligible programs and projects.

The deadline for responses was February 28, 2020, 4:00 p.m. CST

Clarification statement regarding grant matching:

FFAF grants may cover up to 50% of the cash expenditure required to implement a project. A cash match must be provided by the applicant to cover the expenses not paid by the grant. While a project may include in-kind donations of various kinds, only the cash expenditures involved in the project will be considered when calculating the amount of an FFAF grant.


All FAFF grant applications and associated materials are due by February 28th, 2020 by 4:00pm CST. Applications must be submitted via email to the following email address: Applications will not be considered if submitted after the deadline.
