Kearny Urban Enterprise Zone

The Town of Kearny administers one of New Jersey’s thirty-seven Urban Enterprise Zones, under a contractual agreement with the State of New Jersey. The Kearny Urban Enterprise Zone Department also administers the Town’s economic redevelopment projects as well as offers existing and prospective small and large businesses and investor’s access to additional public and private sector financial incentives.

Since its establishment in 1985, by agreement and annual contract between the Mayor and Council and the State of New Jersey, the Kearny UEZ has invested over twenty-seven million dollars of sales and use taxes collected by qualified retailers in the KUEZ. This funding makes possible for continuing improvements to our business environment and the quality of life for residents, shoppers from our region and the people employed in Kearny’s industrial businesses spread across the Meadowlands through South Kearny and the Kearny Foreign Trade Zone.
