Business Advocates

The Business Action Center’s Office of Business Advocacy, supported by the Business Call Center, serves as a one-stop shop for business. The team plays a vital role in working to retain and attract business to the State, providing professional and coordinated assistance to businesses.

Services include:

Financial and Incentive Programs
The Business Advocates will walk you through the vast array of the State’s incentive and financing programs available to your business. We can identify the specific programs for which your business may be eligible, and help locate the resources that best meet your needs. In addition, the Advocates are invaluable when it comes time to begin the application process, assisting in completing the necessary paperwork. You can count on us to answer any questions and provide guidance every step of the way.

Permitting and Regulatory Assistance
The Business Advocates provide professional, coordinated services to help new and existing businesses navigate New Jersey’s regulatory processes. By actively working with various state agencies and departments, such as the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the team studies all of the issues involved, quickly accesses the challenges and formulates solutions.

Beyond its numerous contacts on the state level, the Business Advocates have excellent working relationships with county and local government entities throughout New Jersey.

Site Selection Services
New Jersey’s Business Action Center offers a full range of site selection solutions. These include development services, such as assembling land and restructuring financing. Additionally, we can provide considerable assistance in facilitating the permitting process.
