“Struggling small businesses on Main Streets across New Jersey have the opportunity to receive much needed funding to help them stay afloat during these tough times,” said Singer (R-30). “The window to apply is short, so I encourage those eligible to prepare and apply as soon as applications open. Do not miss out on this opportunity to receive assistance!”

The NJEDA will award a total of $70 million in federal CARES Act funding to small businesses.

Any business or nonprofit located in New Jersey, including home-based businesses, with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) is eligible to receive grant funding during Phase 3.

Businesses that received funding in previous phases of the program are eligible to receive Phase 3 funding.

To streamline the application process, the Authority is requiring all applicants to pre-register online. Applications will become available on a rolling basis following the pre-registration period. Pre-registered applicants will need to return to complete an application based on the following schedule:

  • Restaurants – 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 29, 2020
  • Micro businesses – 9:00 a.m. on Friday, October 30, 2020
  • All other businesses, excluding restaurants and micro businesses – 9:00 am on Monday, November 2, 2020
