As the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, the virus in having a profound impact on Jersey City, impacting each and every one of us. As of this writing, Jersey City has more COVID-19 cases than many states and countries. The City of Jersey City is working daily to protect the health and safety of its residents.  These proactive measures include expanded testing to address those on our frontlines – first responders, health care workers and grocery store employees, support for small businesses facing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 with a 100% match on state grants, and providing regular healthy  meals to vulnerable seniors.

Many of you have asked how you can help our community address the full scope of this crisis.  In the midst of this challenging time, your support is vital to help Jersey City continue to move forward.  That’s why Mayor Fulop has asked the Jersey City Economic Development Corporation (JCEDC) to create the Jersey City COVID-19 Relief Fund. 

This Fund will provide resources and support to the City’s most vulnerable residents: it will help us minimize hardships for needy families and seniors by improving access to food and other necessities. The Fund will also invest in our local economy by helping small businesses and nonprofits — the backbone of our neighborhoods— get back on their feet.

Donations to the Jersey City COVID-19 Relief Fund are tax deductible. If you prefer, you may donate with a check made payable to Jersey City Economic Development Corporation, with “COVID-19 Relief Fund” written in the memo field. Checks should be mailed to Jersey City Economic Development Corporation, Attn: Florence Baron, 298 Academy Street, Jersey City, NJ 07306.
