Grant Program Workshop For Businesses Affected By Sandy Coming To Woodbridge

WOODBRIDGE — The NJ Economic Development Authority will be hosting a Stronger NJ Business Grant workshop on Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Woodbridge Township Municipal Building.

The $260 million Stronger NJ Business Grant Program is available to help small businesses and nonprofits that have been damaged by Superstorm Sandy. Under this program, grants and forgivable loans of up to $50,000 per impacted location are available; businesses with multiple impacted locations may be eligible for an award of up to $250,000.

“We encourage business owners with at least $5,000 in damage from the storm to apply for a grant,” said Virginia Pellerin, an NJEDA communications officer.  “Eligible costs for reimbursement under this program may include: working capital (operating expenses), inventory, equipment, machinery, furnishings, and prospective construction.  The workshop is an opportunity for business owners that have begun the application process to get help completing it, or for new applicants to begin the process.”
