NJEDA Coronavirus Grant Program Application Deadline Extended to July 8 to Accommodate CARES Act Funding for Ocean, Essex, and Passaic Counties
TRENTON, N.J.

The Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program provides grants up to $10,000 to small businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
