Gov. Phil Murphy has announced that the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency is allocating a $25-million Small Landlord Emergency Grant Program to assist landlords and tenants with pandemic-related losses. Landlords who receive assistance from the program must then pass the benefits on to their tenants by forgiving outstanding back rent and late fees that were accumulated during the same period. The money comes from federal CARES Act funding.

The New Jersey Department of Education has released the FAQ that was referred to in the Governor’s briefing on Monday. Please visit nj.gov/education to find this resource.

A new contact tracing dashboard has been launched on the state’s official website and can be reached at www.covid19.nj.gov.

The NJEDA wants to make it easy for organizations to understand what support programs are available to you to help stabilize your operations and get back on a pathway to growth. As a courtesy, the NJEDA is offering this screening tool that lists emergency assistance programs that you may decide to consider based upon information you provide about your organization.

This is a beta version of the "Eligibility Wizard" that focuses on newly announced State Emergency Assistance programs and the SBA disaster loan program. NJEDA will be updating the tool regularly as new federal, state, local, and philanthropic programs become available.  View it here.
