The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious financial impact on communities across the country, which prompted the passage of The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act by the federal government.

The County of Bergen, under the leadership of County Executive Jim Tedesco and the Board of Chosen Freeholders, utilizing CARES Act relief funds, has launched the Bergen County CARES Small Business Grant Program.

The Bergen County CARES Small Business Grant Program is an economic stability measure designed to provide financial relief to small businesses negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and to increase overall business confidence during recovery.

Phase One for the BERGEN COUNTY CARES SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAM was completed between July 13th to July 24th.

Please see below for more information about the Bergen County CARES Small Business Grant Program provided through Bergen County. Phases are detailed in the Program Outline in the PDFs listed here:
