How has New Jersey spent its COVID relief funds?

On October 16, 2020, New Jersey launched the COVID-19 Transparency website, which tracks the State's eligible and planned uses of any funds disbursed by the federal or State government to help New Jersey residents, businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and other entities respond to or recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Visit the site to see how the State distributed disaster-related funds.

The Governor has also created a COVID-19 Compliance Task Force to review all COVID-related procurements above a certain dollar threshold, ensure internal controls, and provide compliance training to all agencies receiving COVID-19 funds.

The Task Force established an Integrity Oversight Monitoring program with a pool of outside vendors to ensure agencies guard against fraud, waste, and abuse of any COVID-19 funds. Integrity monitors will submit quarterly reports to the Disaster Recovery Office, the Attorney General, the Comptroller, and both the Senate President and Assembly Speaker, as well as post them online.
