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.
When will the NJHI: Upstream Action Acceleration grants begin?
The grants will begin December 1, 2018.
How does NJHI announce its funding initiatives?
NJHI funding initiatives are announced through calls for proposals on the NJHI web site, and in the Funding Opportunities section of the RWJF web site at www.rwjf.org. NJHI also announces its funding initiatives, and shares updates regarding available applicant resources on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Follow NJHI on these platforms, and bookmark the NJHI web site, to stay aware of the latest funding initiatives and other announcements.
Does NJHI release calls for proposals on a specific date or at a specific time of the year?
What if an organization wants to inquire about possible NJHI funding opportunities outside of the annual call for proposals?
We are always interested in hearing about work happening in the state, or ideas that could be implemented to help all New Jerseyans live the healthiest lives possible. Contact us
What is the average length and amount of a NJHI grant?
The typical amount of a NJHI grant ranges from two to four years and between $150k and $200k. However, smaller or larger grants may be awarded depending on the initiative.

How many grants will you award under NJHI: Upstream Action Acceleration?
Up to 16 grants will be awarded under this program.
What is your definition of a coalition?
While we do not endorse any one definition of coalition, we would describe a coalition as a group of organizations and individuals representing multiple sectors from their community cooperating in joint action together for a common purpose. For the purpose NJHI: Upstream Action Acceleration, that common purpose would be a healthier community.
Do you provide grants to individuals?
Do you give grants to for-profit organizations?
For-profit organizations are not eligible for funding through NJHI.
