The Strategic Investment Fund (“SIF”) is used to manage the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s devolved funding. Its purpose is to invest in economic growth which supports our ambitions, as set out in the Plan for Prosperity and our Investment Strategy below. Since government funding tends to be allocated to distinct programmes with different themes and at different times, SIF acts as a platform to assemble, invest and manage these distinct programmes.
Since its formation, SIF has made significant investments in the following projects that address our strategic priorities, including:
Kindred CIC – £5.5m invested into providing finance for socially trading organisations using innovative solutions to tackle some of the most pressing social and environmental challenges across LCR.
