Under this initiative NJIT, along with other Newark based partner organizations from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, is establishing specific targets for employing more local residents, increasing procurement of goods and services from local businesses, and providing rental incentives to eligible NJIT employees living in local, designated neighborhoods.

This partnership relies on three integrated interrelated strategies: Hire, Buy, Live Local Newark.

NJIT is proud to join Rutgers-Newark, RWJBarnabas Health, Prudential, PSE&G, United Airlines, Audible, and Panasonic, among the growing list of organizations, in this ambitious and important community based initiative.
