Hunterdon County Economic Development Grant Program
Hunterdon County is committed to partnering with our communities through, among other things, the provision of resources to help move forward common goals. The highly popular Economic Development Grant Program is an extremely important example of this commitment.
The program is funded on an annual basis and is available to county municipalities and local non-profit business associations looking to move economic development programs and initiatives forward. Through the program, beneficiaries have revamped their websites, streamlined their policy and procedure, hired consultants for a wide-variety of projects, and much more.
The program goes a long way towards making the entirety of Hunterdon County attractive for investment and for ensuring that economic development is a common goal of all county communities.
