November 24, 2020

The New Jersey Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Access Program is a public-private partnership that helps businesses and non-profits protect the health and safety of their employees and customers.​ Through the program, all NJ-based businesses and non-profits are eligible for 10% discounts on PPE purchases made through approved online retailers, including Boxed, Staples, and Office Depot.

Visit the program website to get started: https://covid19.nj.gov/ppeaccess.​

Organizations with 100 or fewer employees can apply for grant funding for an additional 25% off products purchased through the approved online vendors. These additional 25% discounts are capped at $20.4M for the entire program and $400 to $500 per organization (depending on your company’s location). ​

Applications for the additional 25% off will open on the program website on Tuesday, November 10th at 9 a.m. ET and are subject to available funds.​  A walk through of the application can be viewed here.

All organizations can also utilize a free online PPE planning tool to estimate how much PPE they will need in the coming months.

If you are interested in becoming an approved online retailer, or are a NJ-based PPE manufacturer or wholesaler, see the program website for more information on how you can participate: https://covid19.nj.gov/ppeaccess.
