Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ)

The UEZ program was developed by the State of New Jersey to help promote redevelopment in its urban centers. The goal of the UEZ is to promote sustainable growth by helping businesses succeed in city neighborhoods.

In Elizabeth, the UEZ program is a model success story.

Elizabeth established its UEZ almost 20 years ago, and today it operates as one of the most successful economic development programs in the state and the nation.


"HOPE VI represents the dawning of a new era of prosperity in the Port!" said Mayor Chris Bollwage.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the City of Elizabeth a $28.9 million HOPE VI grant in 1997 to transform and revitalize the Pioneer Homes and Migliore Manor public housing developments. Over the past four years, the HOPE VI Elizabethport Neighborhood Revitalization Program has been recognized as one of the most ambitious and innovative revitalization programs in the country.
