The Garden State Relief Fund

Supporting the immediate needs of small businesses &
non-profits affected by COVID-19
We know that small businesses are the heart of our communities and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are encountering unexpected challenges in a rapidly changing market. New Jersey Community Capital is pleased to launch the Garden State Relief Fund to meet the immediate needs of small businesses and non-profits critically affected by the pandemic.

The Garden State Relief Fund ensures that small businesses and non-profits are provided with quick yet equitable and inclusive opportunities for relief, stability, and growth. The Fund provides financial support for those that often lack access to conventional capital and have been disproportionally affected by this evolving public health crisis.


  • Businesses and non-profits with 3 to 50 full-time employees. NJCC will aim to process Garden State Relief Fund applications within 10-14 business days.

  • Special opportunity available for businesses located in the THRIVE South Jersey footprint (Gloucester, Cumberland, Salem, and Western Atlantic Counties), thanks to the generous support of the Pascale Sykes Foundation and personal commitment from President and CEO Fran Sykes.
