Last TEDC Webinar in 2020


This is the last TEDC webinar in 2020, you don't want to miss it!

The food system is composed of a diverse range of activities – from agriculture and livestock, to restaurants and grocery stores, to food hubs and food incubation kitchens, and much more – and is a critical piece of the Texas economy. Communities are turning to local food systems for the opportunity to grow local economies by using local food businesses and projects to revitalize neighborhoods and spur economic development, improve public health, increase resiliency, address social issues, and celebrate local culture. Although financing food businesses has historically been perceived as a risky investment, there are billions of dollars being directed towards local food system development through tax credits, bonds, revolving loan funds, tax increment financing, and much more.

Join CDFA, in partnership with the Texas Economic Development Council, for the CDFA-TEDC Webinar: Financing Local Food Systems Development. This exclusive, 90 minute-long webinar will provide explore the variety of financing tools for local food systems development and best practices for investing in strong local food economies. Development finance experts from Texas (and beyond) will share details of various financing programs and project investments that have contributed to building a successful, local food system.
