Social Investment Fund

The Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) is a limited liability company incorporated under The Company’s Act of Jamaica. It was established in 1996 as a component of the Government of Jamaica’s (GoJ's) national poverty alleviation strategy. The Fund was designed primarily to channel resources to small-scaled community based projects. This is done with the use of an Operations Manual that acts as a guide to ensure transparency, accountability and efficiency in project implementation. The main current projects are: the Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) project; Basic Needs Trust Fund;
Community Investment Project (CIP); and the Third European Union Poverty Reduction Programme.
