PPE Access Program Deadline Extended to May 28
On March 22, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) announced it will extend the deadline of the NJ Small and Micro Business PPE Access Program through Friday, May 28th, 2021 or until program funds are exhausted. New Jersey businesses with 100 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) will be able to receive discounts of nearly 70 percent off purchases of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Small businesses and organizations interested in receiving these discounts must apply at https://ppe.covid19.nj.gov. Businesses that have already been approved do not need to reapply, but any discounts they have used previously will be counted toward the total program cap.
Once the NJEDA has confirmed a business’s eligibility, the business owner will receive vouchers for purchases from a Designated Vendor of their choice. Vouchers will expire at 11:59 PM on May 28th, 2021, but the NJEDA may close the program sooner if funds are exhausted. Businesses and nonprofits will still be able to receive 10 percent discounts on PPE purchases after this date.
