The NJ Department of Community Affairs’ Main Street New Jersey Program has directly and indirectly provided technical assistance and training to designated MSNJ communities, districts and stakeholders since 1989.  Please see the MSNJ website and its 20th Anniversary Report ( for a comprehensive history and context of the MSNJ program and its local designees.

Over the past several years, MSNJ has moved to include more services related directly to local business retention, with an emphasis providing high-quality and practical feedback and best practices to business owners and operators in MNSJ districts and to local MSNJ programs themselves.  By providing an Online Business retention/District  Enhancement Program, MSNJ expects to assist a core number MSNJ programs whose districts both can become more sustainable over the long-term while ensuring short-term impact in small business performance.

Summary: The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs’ Main Street New Jersey Program (“MSNJ”) is seeking qualifications and proposals from well-qualified firms to implement an Online Business Retention & District Enhancement Program.  These services are needed to meet the demand for training and support for up to 22 designated MSNJ districts in New Jersey per the State’s ongoing Letters of Agreement with these designated programs/municipalities.
