Abstract/OtherAbstract:
More than 23 million Americans have limited access to grocery stores. Healthy food financing initiatives have been emerging at local, state, and federal levels to address grocery gaps. Through public-private partnerships, retailers have been awarded funding to open or renovate a variety of food outlets. Preliminary findings have reported increased access to healthy foods, as well as improved community and economic development. As policy makers continue to consider enacting or expanding these initiatives and as all program stakeholders increasingly seek information on program impacts, this article provides guidance on using meaningful, measurable, and manageable methods to evaluate program's multifaceted outcomes.
