Extending N.J. Urban Enterprise Zone Perks to Continue City Revitalizations

Extending N.J. Urban Enterprise Zone Perks to Continue City Revitalizations
BY JENNIFER SCIORTINO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Assemblyman Reed Gusciora has introduced legislation to help a number of New Jersey cities, including Trenton, continue to benefit from the economic incentives provided under the state’s long-running Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) program.

The UEZ Program - first created in 1983 - offers participating businesses incentives that encourage business growth and stimulate local economies. Approximately 6,800 certified UEZ businesses participate and benefit from the advantages of the UEZ program statewide. These include a number of tax and financial incentives, including tax credits to hire local workers.

The UEZ designation in the cities of Bridgeton, Camden, Newark, Plainfield, Trenton, and the joint UEZ in the cities of Millville and Vineland are all set to expire within the next five years. Gusciora’s bill (A-4120) would extend their UEZ designation for a one-time period of 10 years, thus continuing their participation in the program.
