State Announces $275 Million in Relief for Small Businesses and Individuals Impacted by COVID-19

Governor Phil Murphy announced last week the allocation of an additional $235 million in funding for small business relief and $40 million in funding for an excluded residents fund to assist individuals negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, respectively.

Small Business Relief

To assist small businesses, the Governor will work with the Legislature to enact an additional $235 million in State funds for various small business relief programs administered by the EDA. This funding will fulfill all eligible pending EDA Phase IV small business grant requests. EDA will begin accepting applications for the extended Phase IV in the near future.

To date, the EDA has distributed more than $250 million in aid to some 55,000 businesses across the state. The breakdown of the $235 million in proposed small business funding is as follows:

  • Microbusinesses: $120 million
  • Bars and Restaurants: $20 million
  • Child Care Facilities: $10 million
  • New Businesses and Start-Ups: $25 million
  • Sustain and Serve: $10 million
  • Other Small Businesses and non-profits: $50 million

Excluded New Jerseyans Fund

Governor Murphy will also allocate $40 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) funds for New Jerseyans who have previously been ineligible for federal assistance, including ITIN holders and others previously excluded from COVID relief assistance such as federal stimulus checks or unemployment insurance.

The Excluded New Jerseyans Fund will provide a one-time cash assistance benefit of up to $2,000 to households with incomes up to $55,000 that can demonstrate they have suffered economic hardship due to COVID-19. 

The program will begin accepting applications in the coming months.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from Hamilton Township!

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and we would be remiss if we did not pause to thank all teachers for their hard work and dedication to their work and our youth. This past year we have been faced with countless challenges, and yet despite being thrust into a world we never could have anticipated, you rose above and helped our children to continue on a path of education – never missing a beat. So today we say “thank you” to the Hamilton Township School District teachers and all other teachers in our lives - you make us #HamiltonProud !
