Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Applications for New Jersey Health Initiatives
Deadline: January 15, 2009

New Jersey Health Initiatives 2009, a statewide grantmaking program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (, will support projects that improve the health literacy and status of immigrants in New Jersey communities. Project funds will support collaborative partnerships between culturally competent community-based organizations or other service providers that have gained the trust of immigrant communities and established health service providers.

Applicant organizations must be either nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or public entities such as a unit or department of government or a school board. Private foundations as defined under Section 509(a) are not eligible.

Projects will be selected with the intention of funding a diverse group of grantees based on location (e.g., region of the state, urban/rural), country of origin of the population served, and types of providers.

In 2009, the program expects to make up to ten grants of up to $250,000 each over a three-year period.

See the Call for Proposals at the RWJF Web site for complete program guidelines.
