NJEDA Releases PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit Program Preliminary Rules for Public Feedback


TRENTON, N.J. (June 4, 2021) – The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) today released a draft of the rules under which the new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Manufacturing Tax Credit program will be administered. Created under the New Jersey Economic Recovery Act of 2020 (ERA), the PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit program is a three-year program that provides tax credits to incentivize the development of PPE manufacturing within the state.

Members of the public are encouraged to review the preliminary rules and submit written feedback through an online form available on the Economic Recovery Act website. The NJEDA will also be hosting a Listening Session for Public Input on the PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit program at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021.

“Getting New Jersey residents back to work is going to be central to ensuring a strong, equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said NJEDA Chief Executive Officer Tim Sullivan. “The PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit program offers incentives for the creation of good jobs in a high-growth sector while ensuring New Jersey is well-prepared to meet any future PPE needs.”

Draft PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit program rules are available now for review at https://www.njeda.com/economicrecoveryact/program-specific-feedback/.  

The Listening Session for Public Input on the PPE Manufacturing Tax Credit program will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021. The session is expected to last roughly two hours.
