Posted on June 27, 2011

New Jersey Health Initiatives Seeks Capacity Building Proposals From Health and Human Service Organizations
Deadline: July 28, 2011

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Jersey Health Initiatives, a statewide grantmaking program, is accepting applications for its Community Agency Capacity Enhancement Program.

This special solicitation is designed to strengthen the core organizational capacity of community-based organizations working to provide social, health, and direct human services to historically disadvantaged populations in New Jersey. These include, but are not limited to, organizations serving ethnic and racial minorities from historically disadvantaged groups or other persons in low-resourced communities. Project funds will support the development and implementation of a strategy to improve each organization’s ability to manage, evaluate, and sustain programs aimed at serving their clients.

Up to ten New Jersey projects will receive grants of up to $150,000 over a two-year period.

Applicants must be nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations based in New Jersey; be direct providers of social, health, and human services; have an annual operating budget of between $750,000 and $5 million; and have been providing services for at least five years. Private foundations, as defined under Section 509(a), are not eligible to apply.

Optional Web conferences for applicants will be held in June and July. Information about specific dates and registration is available on the NJHI Web site.

Visit the RWJF Web site for the complete Call for Proposals and application procedures.
