Greenstein Bill to Establish New Jersey Small Business Indoor Air Quality Management Support Program Moves Forward

Trenton– In an effort to improve air quality for New Jersey small business employees, the Senate Labor Committee today proposed legislation sponsored by Senator Linda Greenstein that would establish the “Management Support Program Indoor Air Quality for Small Businesses in New Jersey”.

Bill S-289 would provide loans to qualifying small businesses for indoor air quality improvements. The program would be administered by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, which would consult with the Department of Environmental Protection regarding indoor air quality standards.

“We are all well aware of the financial burdens that small businesses have faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sen. Greenstein (D-Mercer/Middlesex). “As businesses have continued to reopen, ensuring they have sufficient air quality to mitigate the spread of the virus has become a costly constraint. By establishing the New Jersey Small Business Indoor Air Quality Management Support Program, we will be able to help businesses make smart, sound investments in their infrastructure to keep their customers safe. and employees.

Under the bill, funds from the loan could be applied to any aspect of eligible small businesses’ intent to improve the indoor air quality of the business, including capital purchases, training employees and wages.

The bill was released from committee by a vote of 5-0.
