The Treasury Department’s CDFI Fund awarded LISC $4 million to ramp up economic development and healthy food efforts in low-income areas. But that number doesn't tell the whole story. LISC will leverage those grants to invest $40 million that helps build up local businesses and jobs and bring grocery stores, farmers markets and food production facilities to food deserts.
