$1.1 million of CPPW funds will be dedicated to providing business incentives to increase the amount of healthy food available through retail outlets in under-served communities. Participating businesses will have access to a menu of services, including merchandising and inventory management consultations; assistance in finding low-cost suppliers; financial incentives including grants, rebates, and access to lending partners; and participation in promotion and marketing campaigns designed to increase demand for healthy foods.

These efforts, coordinated by the Seattle Office of Economic Development, are intended to improve the access and availability of healthy foods and beverages in South King County, Southeast Seattle and Southwest Seattle.

Businesses interested in participating in this program should contact Theresa Barreras at 206-684-4505 or theresa.barreras@seattle.gov.
