ONE OF NEW JERSEY’S LARGEST AND MOST ACTIVE SINGLE MUNICIPALITY CHAMBERS
Emergency Federal Relief Fund: The recent flooding has been nothing short of devastating for a long list of local businesses, schools, and homeowners across Essex County. FEMA has added Essex County to the official declaration list. Now, those in Essex County who suffered damage to their homes or businesses in Hurricane Ida are now eligible for emergency federal relief funds. Apply for assistance here, or learn more about the Individual Assistance program. Also, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved an emergency grant program for small businesses — those with up to 50 employees — impacted last week by the remains of Hurricane Ida, and for businesses impacted by Tropical Storm Henri. More about the Henri/Ida Business Assistance Grant program. This has been a challenging time for so many in Essex County. We are happy to share these resources for those affected. The North Essex Chamber Team.

In 1896, a private library was established in a small building donated by James R. Hay opposite the Nutley Railroad Station on Highfield Lane. In 1904, it moved to 381 Passaic Avenue where it remained for ten years. When an Andrew Carnegie grant provided funds for a new public library, the 3,000 books were moved from to the Library’s present site at Booth Drive. Now, the Nutley Public Library maintains a collection of approximately 90,000 books: 65,000 adult, young adult and reference volumes and approximately 25,000 children’s books. Additionally, the Library provides books-on-tape, large print books, compact music discs and a circulating video collection. The Library is a member of the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS). It is fully computerized and the holdings of all the BCCLS libraries are available, as well as various on-line computer services. The system is accessible 24/7, 365 days a year on the internet. The Library is also a member of the “Reciprocal Borrowing Libraries” of Essex County and the New Jersey Library Network.
FROM BUSINESSES TO COMMUNITY
The Nutley Chamber of Commerce would like to share a short video about your business, the issues you’ve been having during the Covid-19 shutdown and a short message to your community. The video should be short and engaging. It will be shared on all of the Nutley Chamber social media pages.
BRINGING NEW POST-COVID-19 TRAFFIC TO NUTLEY
In order to pull the workers and students from the ON3 (formerly Hoffmann-La Roche) campus into Nutley, the Nutley Chamber of Commerce is investing in a “ON3 Gateway to Nutley Project” to benefit our members. The Chamber has purchased 2,500 “Love Nutley, Shop Nutley” reusable shopping bags, which will be distributed to the businesses and schools at ON3, along with a coupon book containing Chamber members’ ON3-specific coupons. There will be no cost to Chamber members to be included in the booklet. If you wish to participate, please download the corresponding links below, depending if you’re already a member or if you are a non-member, interested to join:
