34:1B-116 Grant application.

5.Each business seeking a grant of tax credits for a project shall submit an application for approval of the project to the authority in a form and manner prescribed in regulations adopted by the authority. The application must be submitted to the authority for approval at least 45 days prior to moving to the new business location; provided however, a business relocating 1,500 or more retained full-time jobs to one or more new locations within a designated urban center shall, if relocating to a leased location, submit an application within six months of executing its lease. A business that has had grant pre-application meetings with the authority and has executed contracts relating to the new business location during the period commencing May 1, 2010 until the enactment of P.L.2010, c.123 shall not be deemed ineligible for the grant due to the requirement to apply 45 days before moving to the new business location. The application for approval of a project shall include:

a.A schedule of short-term and long-term employment projections of the business in the State based upon the relocation;

b.(Deleted by amendment, P.L.2004, c.65.)

c.Terms of any lease agreements, either existing or proposed, or details of the purchase or building of the new business location, if applicable;

f.Evidence that the business or a predecessor entity has been operating, in whole or in part, in this State for at least 10 years prior to the filing of the application;

g.Evidence of alternative relocation plans, such as an analysis of the cost effectiveness of remaining in this State versus relocation under the alternative plans;

h.(Deleted by amendment, P.L.2010, c.123); and

i.Any other necessary and relevant information as determined by the authority.

The authority staff may provide whatever assistance the authority deems appropriate in the preparation of an application for approval of a project and may issue grants of tax credits pursuant to the project agreement entered between the authority and the business.

The project agreement shall include terms establishing the starting date, or event that will determine the starting date, of the commitment duration and any other terms or conditions as determined by the authority, which shall include the number of full-time jobs that must be maintained in the State by the business over the commitment duration.
