NJEDA Announces Second Round of Grant Funding

[Updated June 5, 2020.] The NJEDA Has Announced Phase 2 of The Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) has announced a second wave of small business funding. The second round provides increased flexibility in the businesses that can apply. The $50 million grant will be funded federally through the CARES Act to provide relief to New Jersey businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

What You Need to Know

The second phase of funding for the NJEDA grant now allows both sole proprietorships and home-based businesses to be eligible. Also, 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), 501(c)(6), and 501(c)(7) non-profit organizations are now eligible.

The first $5 million will go to businesses on the waitlist from phase one. This leaves $45 million for new applicants, of which $15 million is set aside for businesses in Opportunity Zone-eligible census tracts.

Some other important information to know about the funding include:

  • The minimum grant amount per application is $1,000.
  • The maximum grant amount per application is $10,000.
  • The business can have up to 25 employees (increased from 10 employees in round 1).
  • The business must be in good standing with the NJ Department of Labor.
  • The business cannot have outstanding tax liabilities.

Sample application forms and requirements are available here. The applications will go live on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at 9:00AM. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
