The New Jersey Economic Development Authority board will support the creation of the Activation, Revitalization, and Transformation Program with $10 million to create two programs, one for Real Estate Rehabilitation and Development projects and one for Public Space Activation initiatives, which will help to reactivate and revitalize Atlantic City and Newark’s commercial corridors in the wake of COVID-19.
