Greater Trenton, in association with the City of Trenton, Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce and Trenton Downtown Association, will host a Webinar on Monday, April 20th at 2:30 p.m. focused on providing COVID-19 relief information for businesses in Trenton, New Jersey. This session is only for those who own or operate a business in the city of Trenton. Find detailed information at www.GreaterTrenton.org/BusinessRelief.
The City of Trenton recently launched The Trenton Business Emergency Loan Program and is now accepting applications for low-interest loans to Trenton businesses to help them remain in business and protect jobs. While the $2 million loan fund provided by the City of Trenton in response to the COVID-19 crisis is restricted to Trenton businesses within the Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ), additional funding opportunities for ALL Trenton businesses may be available through New Jersey Community Capital (NJCC) and other sources. In addition, businesses outside the UEZ are still encouraged to complete an application with the city in the event that additional unrestricted funds become available.
The webinar will last one hour and will include a brief introduction of the participants and objectives for the call; specifics of the City’s Emergency Loan Program; how and which Trenton businesses can participate; NJCC’s Garden State Relief Fund and how Trenton businesses that are not within the UEZ may be able to benefit by accessing these dollars. There will also be time for questions from the Trenton businesses participating on the Zoom call.
