The States Assembly agreed on 18 November 2020 to establish a £50 million Fiscal Stimulus Fund to support Jersey's economic recovery. The Fund is part of the Fiscal Stimulus Package announced in July 2020 and funds will be available in two tranches of £25 million each.
It is intended that stimulus funding is provided on a timely, targeted and temporary basis, and is aimed at smaller scale, agile projects of no more than £5 million per project and that would be expected to be completed by December 2021.

What does your project need to demonstrate
Applications for project funding need to have a sponsoring department. You should ensure that you have discussed any proposed project with a department prior to completing the Expression of Interest. Applications for project funding can be made by States Bodies, Arms-length organisations and not-for-profit organisations for those initiatives that are aimed at stimulating the economy such as:
- employment support
- business support
- skills training
- infrastructure and property improvements
- maintenance and investment in productivity improvements, for example through technology
The project needs to demonstrate that it can:
- assist in reducing the fall in output and employment in the short-term
- provide opportunities to assist in reducing the damage to the economy in the medium to long-term
