The Garden State Initiative envisions New Jersey reclaiming its position as an economic engine of growth and prosperity; a state that is economically diverse and fiscally strong, with vibrant communities and a business environment that affords the opportunity for all its citizens to thrive.



The Garden State Initiative’s mission is to strengthen New Jersey by providing an alternative voice and common sense policy solutions in the state—solutions that promote new investment, the growth of jobs, the creation of economic opportunities, and innovation to the benefit of all New Jerseyans.
