On April 8, 2020, NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 122 enacting a temporary suspension of all non-essential construction in NJ, with the effective date of Friday April 10, 2020 at 8:00PM. The suspension of non-essential construction will remain in place until further notice.
Exceptions to this shut-down include: projects at our hospitals and schools, in our transportation and utility sector, the building of affordable housing, other individual housing sites that can adhere to strict limits on the number of workers on-site at any given time, emergency repairs, and work needed to safely secure a construction site, and other limited instances.

Resources for Builders & Contractors
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program, the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses who maintain their payroll during this emergency. Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.
