About Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF)

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-scale 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.

Furthermore, the operations of the JSIF were initially funded by a loan negotiated between the GoJ and the World Bank. Though the JSIF was initially established as a temporary organization with an initial lifespan of four (4) years, it has been in operation for over 18 years and presently has agreements that will continue until 2025.
