Funding applications now open for £458m Single Investment Fund

Following approval of the Single Investment Fund (SIF) prospectus at last week’s Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, applications for round one funding are now invited.

The SIF is the key funding tool for the Liverpool City Region, and will address the City Region’s strategic priorities.  Just over £458 million is being invested in the City Region over the next five years as part of the City Region’s Devolution Agreement with the Government.

The Single Investment Fund prospectus will be used to commission and fund key growth projects in areas which include business growth and sector development, research and development, skills development and adult education budget, transport and other infrastructure, regeneration, town centre development and culture.

The application process for phase one of funding is now open.

Further information about the fund, the prospectus, the levels of funding, who is available to apply and the application process can be found on www.liverpoolcityregion-ca.gov.uk
