Greenfield Dollars are a local currency designed for use in the city of Greenfield, Massachusetts issued by the Greenfield Business Association working in collaboration with participating local businesses, and local non-profit organizations.
The purpose of a local currency is to function on a local scale the same way that national currencies have functioned on a national scale — building the local economy by maximizing circulation of trade within a defined region. Widely used in the early 1900s, local currencies are again being recognized as a tool for sustainable economic development. The currency distinguishes the local businesses that accept the currency from those that do not, building stronger relationships and a greater affinity between the business community and the citizens of a particular place.
