Storm-impacted business owners who are seeking funds from the state’s Stronger New Jersey Business Grants program will be able to meet with officials from the N.J. Economic Development Authority (EDA) without traveling to Trenton.
Officials from the EDA’s Office of Recovery are setting up space at Russell Hall on Fort Monmouth to process grant and loan applications submitted by business owners affected by the superstorm.
“The notion is to be here in the field. So when businesses have to talk to our business advocates about their applications, they don’t have to go all the way to Trenton,” EDA representative Tim Lizura said.
