New Jersey is doling out another 15 million dollars in small business grants to bolster the state’s economic recovery.
The latest infusion of cash comes from the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund. Governor Murphy says small businesses are the backbone of the state’s economy.
“Seeing both businesses and employees emerge from this pandemic strong and ready for the times ahead is critical to the success of our overall restart and recovery.”
The Governor made the announcement outside the A-List Hair Studio in North Brunswick.
Many small businesses have struggled to reopen amid the pandemic … and others like gyms and indoor-only restaurants have had to remain closed. The state has now seen some 180-thousand confirmed cases of coronavirus since March … with nearly 16-thousand confirmed and probable deaths.
