Completed Projects

The Phillipsburg UEZ has many success stories since its inception.

The UEZ seeks to recruit new retail and service businesses to our business district. In the past, It offered an array of incentives to selected businesses wishing to relocate or expand in Phillipsburg.  With new funding no longer available from the State, tax incentives are still available for UEZ Certified businesses; however, grant funds are extremely limited.
