The City of Newark and State of New Jersey are aggressively luring business to the region. Newark CEDC helps to coordinate efforts between different levels of government to ensure that we remain competitive. Some of the incentives include tax credits for job creation, property tax abatements in exchange for more predictable PILOT payments, bond financing and more.

A new program launched by Mayor Baraka will abate payroll taxes for companies that hire a majority of Newark residents. This will not only make Newark a more attractive place to do business but will directly benefit Newarkers.
