SCORE is dedicated to helping Veteran entrepreneurs translate military skills into business success. SCORE is the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors. Their network of more than 10,000 mentors can meet with you via phone, video, or email to answer your business questions and guide you through start-up or growth planning. Some of the mentors also served in the military. They understand your challenges because they’ve faced them, too.

Phase 4 of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program provides grants up to $20,000 to small- and medium- sized businesses and non-profits that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The American Rescue Plan Act established the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) to provide funding to help restaurants and other eligible businesses keep their doors open. This program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023.
