Investing in Greater Manchester
We're making it easier to get funding for projects that will help grow the Greater Manchester economy.
We offer loans at commercial rates to businesses and organisations to fund schemes that will boost local employment, improve people's skills and contribute to the region's economic growth.
Our main 'Core Investment Fund' has paid out around £165m to more than 90 companies across Greater Manchester. It has created 8,500 jobs.
We can tap into European funding too, and have money to help housing developers and organisations with environmental improvements that will contribute to a low carbon Greater Manchester.
