Gottheimer Applauds Additional $15 Million in CARES Act Investment to Small Businesses in NJ Counties — Including Sussex, Warren in NJ-5

Aug 04, 2020

GLEN ROCK, NJ – U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) applauded the announcement that $15 million in investment from the bipartisan Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has been made available to New Jersey small businesses. The investment will go to the New Jersey Economic Development Authority which will then administer the investment through programs to businesses impacted by COVID-19, specifically to small businesses in the Fifth District’s Sussex and Warren Counties.

“From early on, North Jersey was in the eye of the COVID-19 storm — with both a health crisis and an economic crisis on our hands. We need to continue to fight for our small businesses impacted by this virus, and I’m proud that this additional investment from the bipartisan CARES Act will be heading to help small businesses in both Sussex and Warren Counties during this incredibly difficult time ,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “We’ve seen what is needed to help our communities get through this — and the hundreds of millions of dollars in CARES Act investment to each Fifth District county thus far is helping — but I’m making sure we’re fighting to claw more resources back for our communities. This will all help ensure our best days are ahead of us.”

Recently, Gottheimer announced that an estimated total of $3 billion in federal investment from the bipartisan CARES Act has helped all 79 of the Fifth District’s towns to date, based on the most recent public data.
