The Food Retail Expansion to Support Health (FRESH) program brings healthy and affordable food options to communities by lowering the costs of owning, leasing, developing, and renovating supermarket retail space. The FRESH zoning incentives are facilitated through the Department of City Planning and the FRESH tax incentives are managed by NYCEDC.


  • FRESH Supermarkets: Businesses that have received or are applying for either FRESH zoning and tax incentives, or both. (NYCEDC, 2020)
  • FRESH Program Eligibility Areas: Fresh boundaries show where zoning and discretionary tax incentives are available for development, expansion and renovation of full line grocery stores and supermarkets (NYCDCP, 2019)
