NJHI will not launch any new major funding initiatives through December 31, 2022, while the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation considers ways to refine its statewide funding strategies to best contribute to the advancement of health equity in its home state. This in-depth program redesign process, a regular practice for RWJF, includes reimagining the role of New Jersey Health Initiatives.

RWJF and NJHI remain committed to current and former grantees’ ongoing success and that of their partners, in addition to ensuring the work they are doing can continue seamlessly throughout and beyond this transition. NJHI is now focusing on providing technical assistance and capacity-building support to these community-focused collaboratives. NJHI will also continue to manage these learning networks:

In addition, NJHI will continue to convene and facilitate other partnership activities so that mutual learning and relationship building within and across communities and the state will remain a common practice.

RWJF and NJHI look forward to continuing to work with communities in achieving a future in which all New Jerseyans have a fair and just opportunity to live their healthiest lives possible.

Funding Opportunities from Our Partners: June Due Dates (2)

The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey Grants
Applications Due: June 29 for consideration on September 19.

The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey is accepting applications for $10,000 to $50,000 in funding in two priority areas:

  • Caring – Advancing Education, Awareness & Disease Prevention, which includes a focus on mental health programs and services that increase awareness, education and community outreach, and reduce stigma, especially among youth and adolescents. In addition, there are other considerations for work that focuses on Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Connecting – Reducing Barriers to Better Health, which provides support for evidence-based programs that address social determinants of health, including access to health care, education, employment, food insecurity, homelessness, mental health services and transportation. Work in this area can be coordinated by health care professionals, such as community health workers, case managers, patient navigators, nurses, social workers, certified peer specialists and nurses.

Funding decisions are made four times annually by The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey’s Board of Directors. The final application due date for 2022 is August 31.


The BUILD Health Challenge
Round 1 applications are due Thursday, June 30.

With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and 13 additional funders across the nation, the BUILD Health Challenge Call for Applications is now open. The BUILD Health Challenge seeks to support communities in their efforts to advance health equity—to ensure that no one is disadvantaged from achieving their full health potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances. The BUILD Health Challenge will support up to 19 awards of up to $300,000 each, over a three-year period, to put their bold, upstream, integrated, local, data-driven plans into action. Based on the geographic breakdown of available awards, New Jersey communities of 100,000 residents or more are eligible to apply for the four awards designated for cities from any U.S. state or territory.

The BUILD Health Challenge supports innovative community collaboratives that include a: 1) community-based organization, 2) hospital/health system and/or health plan, 3) public health department, and 4) residents, who are all working together in dynamic ways to address upstream challenges and drive sustainable improvements in community health. The inclusion of additional cross-sector partners such as businesses, universities, foundations, and others that are aligned with proposed efforts is encouraged. Please note that to be eligible for a BUILD Health Challenge award, the hospital or health system partner must demonstrate a 1:1 match.

The BUILD Health Challenge awards are most appropriate for collaborations that have already developed an action plan with clear roles, strategies, and goals, and where an infusion of philanthropic support and access to a strong peer network could accelerate their work within three years and reinforce their path toward sustainability. In 2019, the cities of Camden and New Brunswick received awards from the BUILD Health Challenge. Learn more about their work here. Thursday, June 30 is the last day to submit a Round 1 application. The BUILD Health Challenge will extend invitations to select applicants for Round 2.
