In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires that in the case of any undertaking by which the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) makes direct loans to qualified businesses located in an area designated as being an "urban center" in the "State Development and Redevelopment Plan," the EDA is to include qualified businesses located in areas designated in the plan as being a "regional center" or metropolitan "planning area." Accordingly, qualified businesses in regional centers or metropolitan planning areas would be permitted to receive direct loans under a program by the EDA entitled the "Urban Plus Program." A "qualified business" is defined in the bill as a business that is established by the EDA as a small, woman-owned, or minority-owned New Jersey-based business, manufacturer, redeveloper, or non-profit organization that is unable to obtain funding from conventional sources, notwithstanding the assistance of an EDA guarantee.
