2% or 4% DIVERSITY BONUS

New Jersey, in an effort to create a more inclusive workforce, offers an additional incentive (2% or 4%) to productions that meet certain diversity criteria. Developed to align with wider industry initiatives, the Diversity Bonus aims to increase diversity onscreen (the actors involved, the content of stories) and behind the cameras (the composition of the crews, the diversity of companies involved in production). This initiative helps to ensure that opportunities are available to qualified New Jersey residents of all backgrounds.

For more information on the Diversity Bonus visit the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s website:
https://www.njeda.com/film/ (taking special note of the Diversity tab)

From there, you will find links to the following forms:
