NJEDA to Host Information Sessions for New Emerging Developers Grant


Program will Provide Grants up to $250,000 to Assist Small-Scale Developers in Gaining Access to Capital

TRENTON, N.J. (March 11, 2024) – The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) will host in-person and virtual information sessions to introduce the newly established $20 million Emerging Developers Grant pilot program.

The Program will help developers gain access to capital and build additional capacity to expand their existing portfolio by providing grants of up to $250,000 for pre-development soft costs. Applications are expected to launch in April.

WHAT:           The Emerging Developer Fund aims to address various difficulties that continue to be a constant burden to emerging developers, which limit opportunities to expand their portfolios. Specifically, this includes access to capital due to barriers caused by predatory lending, excessive carrying costs, and predevelopment expenses that result in projects being stalled, and in some cases underutilized. These deterrents in the development industry have created financial setbacks and limited portfolios for emerging development entities that lack the required capital to cover soft costs.

WHO:             The program will support small-scale developers that have completed at least two – but no more than five – commercial and/or mixed-use properties of similar scope
