The New Jersey Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Access Program is an innovative 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.
As of November 24th, discounts available through the PPE Access Program have been expanded!
With the winter season approaching, we have increased small business discounts to nearly 70%, and discount caps have doubled in value. In addition, all discounts will now be valid until December 10th. All organizations approved before Tuesday, November 24th, will automatically have their existing retailer accounts updated to reflect these changes.
Starting November 24th, all approved organizations with 100 or fewer employees are able purchase PPE through the program at a 65% discount. Click the link to check eligibility: NJ PPE Access Program Eligibility Verification
The 65% discount is on top of the 10% discount already available to all New Jersey businesses and non-profits. In addition, the per-company discount caps increased from $500 to $1,000 for organizations located in one of New Jersey’s 715 Opportunity Zone eligible census tracts and from $400 to $800 for all other approved organizations. All additional small business discounts were extended to expire on December 10th, regardless of when the organization first applied.
Approved before November 24th?
All organizations approved before Tuesday, November 24th, automatically had their existing retailer accounts updated to reflect these changes. The 65% discounts are only eligible for purchases on or after November 24th. All purchases made before November 24th will remain at the 10% + 25% discount rate. Additionally, updated budgets will include a deduction from any purchases made prior to the upgraded discount and budget.
