Grant Program Overview

Can an organization be awarded more than one grant?

We have not limited the number of grants that may be awarded in a specific community. However, projects are generally selected with the intention of funding a diverse group of grantees based on several criteria such as location (e.g., region of the state, urban/rural), characteristics of the community being served, and types of stakeholders involved in the project.

Can NJHI grant dollars be applied toward an existing program or model?

Funding through NJHI is generally not intended to support existing programs or models, but is designed to expand or enhance work that is already underway in a community.
