The Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) mobilizes resources and
channels these to community-based socio-economic infrastructure
and social services projects. Through a national partnership between
central and local government, communities and private and public
organizations, the JSIF addresses the immediate demands of
communities in a manner that is quick, efficient, effective,
transparent and non-partisan.
In fulfilling its mandate, the JSIF facilitates the empowerment of
communities and assists in building national capacity to effectively
implement community-based programmes aimed
at social development.
