Small businesses in the Garden State will be getting an additional $15 million in relief aid under new legislation signed by Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday.
An estimated 30% of small businesses in New Jersey have closed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The $15 million in federal money is part of a $100 million relief package.
“Nearly every one of our municipalities has a similar heart. They are the places where small businesses are born and where towns become communities,” the governor said. “Through our actions today, we are ensuring that those heartbeats remain strong and with them, our communities.”
The $15 million in grants is in addition to $25 million in aid signed by the governor last week. That aid is directed to businesses with five or fewer employees.
