Organisations who want to apply for funding from the second tranche of Fiscal Stimulus Fund have until 31 January to submit an Expression of Interest.
Up to £25 million of funding is available from the second tranche of the Fiscal Stimulus Fund (FSF), which was approved by the States Assembly in November 2020.
The FSF is open to government departments, arms’-length organisations and not-for-profit organisations to fund small scale projects (which are worth less than £5 million) and are timely (expected to be completed by December 2021.)
All projects should support Jersey’s economic recovery from the impact of COVID-19, which could include:
- employment support
- business support
- skills training
- infrastructure and property improvements
- maintenance and investment in productivity improvement
Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Susie Pinel, said: “We received some excellent Expressions of Interest from the first tranche of the Fiscal Stimulus Fund, and we’ve continued to see applications from a range of industries.
“I’d encourage organisations to really harness this opportunity to fund ambitious projects that will help the create more jobs, and deliver longer-term benefits for the Island.”
