Garden State Relief Fund

Providing capital for small businesses and nonprofits affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

Relief and Recovery for Small Businesses & Nonprofits

In March 2020, New Jersey Community Capital launched the Garden State Relief Fund to meet the immediate needs of small businesses and nonprofits critically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that small businesses are the heart of our communities, and in the midst of COVID-19, many are encountering unexpected challenges in a rapidly changing market.

To address these rising concerns, the Garden State Relief Fund offers working capital loans to small businesses and nonprofits negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

How We Help

Consistent with our mission, the Garden State Relief Fund ensures that small businesses and nonprofits are provided with quick yet equitable and inclusive opportunities for relief, stability and growth. The Garden State Relief Fund provides financial support for those that often lack access to conventional capital and have been disproportionately affected by this evolving public health crisis.

Eligibility

  • Businesses and nonprofits in New Jersey with 3 to 75 full-time employees.
  • Special opportunity for businesses located in the THRIVE South Jersey footprint (Gloucester, Cumberland, Salem, and western Atlantic Counties) thanks to the generous support of the Pascale Sykes Foundation. Please click here for more information.

Loan Terms

  • Up to 36 months. Please view complete eligibility and terms.
