ICYMI: Phase 2 of the Sustain and Serve NJ Program Now Open
Applications for Phase 2 of the Sustain and Serve NJ are now open. The NJEDA’s Sustain and Serve NJ program provides eligible entities with grants of between $100,000 to $2 million to support the purchase of meals from New Jersey-based restaurants that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Applications will close July 18, 2021.
The NJEDA will hold an informational webinar on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. for potential applicants to learn tips and advice for applying. The webinar will also include a walk-through of the application. The webinar can be accessed here: http://www.tinyurl.com/SustainandServe2. A recording of the webinar will be available at https://business.nj.gov/covid/eligibility-for-sustain-and-serve.

While restaurants may not directly apply for Sustain and Serve NJ grants, those interested in providing meals through the program may opt to have their information posted publicly on the NJ COVID-19 Business Information Hub at https://forms.business.nj.gov/ssnj/restaurants/ or by completing the Sustain and Serve NJ Restaurant Interest Form available at https://forms.business.nj.gov/ssnj/restaurants/interest/.
