The impact of Covid 19 has been significant on Suffolk’s businesses and our local economy and while the county wide rate of infection allows us to remain in Tier 2, we must all - residents, the public sector, and businesses - do our part to control the virus and prevent the spread as we move towards recovery.
As part of their response to the Covid 19 pandemic Suffolk’s Public Sector Leaders established the Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund (SIGIF), totalling £1.65m with contributions from Suffolk’s pooled business rates and New Anglia LEP funding.
The fund is open to projects that are sponsored by either a local authority or NALEP and respond to the significant impact of COVID 19 on Suffolk’s businesses, employees, and our local economy. In this first round of funding five projects have been successful, with a total investment of £358,400 being committed.
The Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund (SIGIF) is a £1.65m fund allocated by Suffolk Public Sector Leaders (SPSL) and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (NALEP) to support local, place-based economic recovery from Covid 19 across Suffolk.
The Fund will support projects that respond to the significant impact of COVID 19 on Suffolk’s businesses, employees, and our local economy.
