Stronger NJ Business Grant Program

The application deadline for the Stronger NJ Business Grant Program expired on December 31, 2013. New applications are no longer being accepted under this program.

The Stronger NJ Business Grant Program was developed to help New Jersey-based small businesses or non-profit organizations that sustained a minimum of $5,000 in physical damage from Superstorm Sandy. The program is being administered by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA). Eligible small businesses and non-profit organizations may be able to receive grants or forgivable loans of up to $50,000 per Sandy-impacted location to assist them with their recovery from the storm.

If an entity has multiple locations in New Jersey incorporated under a single federal tax identification or employer identification (EIN) number, it may receive up to $250,000 per entity and it may use one application to seek funds for all incorporated, impacted locations.

The grants or forgivable loans must be used for working capital (operating expenses), inventory, equipment, machinery, fixtures, furnishings, and prospective construction.
