Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Announces Call for Proposals for New Jersey Health Initiatives 2011: Transitions in Care
Deadline: January 13, 2011

New Jersey Health Initiatives, a statewide grantmaking program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has announced New Jersey Health Initiatives 2011: Transitions in Care, a program which will support projects that implement systems and methods designed to manage and promote effective transitions in care for adult patients with multiple chronic health conditions and complex social circumstances.

Project funds will support the development of care systems that improve the efficiency of services, improve the quality of care, and reduce the overall cost of caring for patients receiving services from multiple providers (e.g., hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare agencies, primary and specialist physician care, etc.).

Up to seven New Jersey projects will receive grants of up to $300,000 over a two-year period commencing on July 1, 2011, and concluding on June 30, 2013. Grantees (or their partners) must contribute $25,000 each year in matching dollars for a total of $50,000. All matching funds must represent new funding specifically designated to support the proposed project.

Applicant organizations must be either public entities or nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. Private foundations, as defined under Section 509(a), are not eligible. Applicants and their projects must be located in New Jersey. Proposals are invited from an array of health service providers including but not limited to hospitals or health systems, federally qualified health centers, provider groups, long-term care facilities, home care providers, and insurance providers.

Optional Web conferences for applicants will be held on November 2, 4, and 17, 2010. Visit the NJHI Web site for Web conference details and complete program guidelines.
