The Strategic Industries Loan Fund (SILF) is a program offered by the OneGeorgia Authority. The purpose of SILF is to provide financing, through loan assistance, for the purchasing of fixed assets for companies that are considered as a relocation or expansion site for an emerging or development-stage company in a strategic industry targeted by Georgia. SILF is only to be used when needed to fill a financing gap that is unmet by the private sector. The State of Georgia has identified energy as a strategic target industry because it produces commercially viable technologies and will create higher quality jobs.
