NJEDA Expands Discounts, Extends Deadline for PPE Access Program
Starting today businesses with 100 or fewer employees can apply for nearly 70% discount on PPE
On November 23, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) announced it will increase the discounts available on purchases of personal protective equipment (PPE) made through the NJ Small and Micro Business PPE Access Program to nearly 70 percent, effective today. NJEDA will also double the per-business cap on discount vouchers. These discounts will be available to New Jersey businesses and nonprofits with 100 or fewer employees through December 10, 2020.
Small businesses and organizations interested in receiving these additional discounts on PPE purchases must apply at https://covid19.nj.gov/ppeaccess. Once the NJEDA has confirmed eligibility, they will receive vouchers for purchases from a Designated Vendor of their choice. Current Designated Vendors include Boxed, Office Depot, and Staples. Vouchers will expire on December 10, 2020.
In addition to offering discounted PPE, the NJEDA also collaborated with the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) to create an online PPE Planning Tool that helps businesses understand PPE product requirements and estimate their organizational PPE needs. The PPE Planning Tool is available at https://covid19.nj.gov/ppeaccess.
