Downtown New Jersey is providing a series of virtual opportunities for downtown managers, economic development professionals, and public officials to exchange ideas about best practices related to downtown economic development in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
At this forum, we will discuss programs, policies, and legislation that have passed or are being considered to provide economic relief to downtowns and small business. Christina Fuentes, Director of Small Business Services at NJEDA, will join the discussion to provide an overview of NJ initiatives. Erika Calderon, Small Business Legislative Aid from Senator Menendez’s office will also be joining us to give an overview of the stimulus package that passed in the Senate on Wednesday and due for an Assembly floor vote on Friday.
(Please note that this session is not intended for individual business owner participation, rather it is meant to be an exchange of ideas between those involved with the management of downtown business districts.)
