Project Description

Investment will support Southside Community Land Trust (“SCLT”) in renovating a 12,000-sf building for new Farm-to-Market Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Construction is already underway. SCLThas operated its community-based programs focused on urban farming for 40 years, and primarily serves low-income, people of color with many coming from immigrant and refugee communities. SCLT have outgrown their current space and need upgraded facilities to support their organization.

Tenants will sell or utilize foods grown on SCLT’s 38 acres in and around Providence. + NAISC: Financial Transactions Processing, Reserve, and Clearinghouse Activities + CBA: Yes
