Hello South Ward,
I hope all is well. I just wanted to make you aware and hope that will apply and/or share that the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is reopening applications for grants for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through Phase 4 of the Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program. This round of funding will provide grants up to $20,000 to small and medium sized businesses and non-profits that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.
In order to apply for a grant, you must pre-register between Wednesday, May 26th at 9:00 a.m. and Wednesday, June 30th at 5:00 p.m. Interested business owners who did not SUBMIT a pre-registration in April need to pre-register at programs.njeda.com.
Business owners who submitted a pre-registration in April, but did not apply, do not need to pre-register again. Pre-registration IS NOT first come, first served, but businesses are encouraged to begin the process as early as possible.BUSINESSES THAT DO NOT PRE-REGISTER WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR PHASE 4 GRANTS.
Applications will become available in July, following the pre-registration period. Pre-registration and the application will be available in English and Spanish. The NJEDA is also offering interpretation services to support speakers of ten additional languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, and Tagalog.
