New Jersey State Trade and Export Promotion (NJ STEP) Program

Program Details:
Through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC) received funding for the New Jersey State Trade and Export Promotion (NJ STEP) Stipend Program to provide assistance to eligible New Jersey small businesses that are new to export, as well as those businesses who currently sell their goods and services to other countries.

The NJ STEP program is available to eligible businesses on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be used to partially offset the cost of training programs, trade show participation, and for U.S. Department of Commerce programs including Gold Key Matching Services.
