Apr 11, 2020

GLEN ROCK, NJ – This week, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) held video and conference calls with Fifth District Mayors, State and county elected officials, faith leaders, small businesses, first responders, CPAs, lawyers, and farmers and outlined his efforts in helping the Fifth District community combat the coronavirus and its impact on the region. 

“Everyone across the Fifth District and our nation is being affected by this pandemic. It is imperative that we continue to work together, and provide updated information on the federal and state resources available to help our families, first responders, front line health care workers, and businesses,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “While we’re all observing stay-at-home orders, these video and conference calls give me a way to connect with Fifth District residents, leaders, and businesses, to answer questions they have about federal legislation and issues, and to help get resources, answers, and support to them as quickly as possible.” 

To address concerns in North Jersey, Gottheimer this week asked the U.S. Treasury and the U.S. Small Business Administration to release more guidance on small business loans and respond to concerns from small business owners and community banks. 

If any Fifth District resident has questions regarding federal or state support, grants, and small business loans, or COVID-19 resources, please visit or email questions to
