I authorize New Jersey Economic Development Authority ("Authority") and Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of NJ to obtain such information including, but not limited to, a credit bureau check as it may require, covering the applicant and/or its principals, stockholders and/or investors.
Under the provisions of the Federal Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, you are not legally required to provide a Social Security number to the Authority in order to submit your application for this Program. The failure to provide a Social Security number to the Authority may not affect any right, benefit, or privilege to which you are entitled by law. The Authority uses the numbers to distinguish between people with a similar or the same name; voluntarily providing this number to the Authority makes it easier for us to identify individuals more accurately and to keep accurate documentation.
