The City of Camden was designated as an Urban Enterprise Zone in October 1984. The designation prompted by the New Jersey Urban Enterprise Zone Act of 1983 authorized the provision of tax incentives and other benefits to businesses in targeted distressed urban areas throughout the State of New Jersey. The intended impact of the Urban Enterprise Zone legislation was the revitalization of the State’s distressed urban communities through the creation of private sector jobs and investment in targeted urban areas.
The Camden City Urban Enterprise Zone Program is administered under the auspices of the City of Camden, and can be reached at 856-757-7679 or faxed at 856-968-4787.
