New Jersey Health Initiatives: 2015 Call For Proposals: Join us Today/Tomorrow for Applicant Information Sessions 10/29-10/30

New Jersey Health Initiatives (NJHI), a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) program, is pleased to announce the 2015 Call for Proposals (CFP): Building a Culture of Health in New Jersey - Communities Moving to Action.

This CFP is intended to further the Foundation's vision of building a Culture of Health in America by supporting communities across our state to take action to address the multiple factors that influence health: health behaviors, social and economic factors, clinical care, and the physical environment. Funding under this initiative will support up to 10 existing multi-sector, community-focused coalitions across New Jersey over four years. The first year will consist of a Boundary Spanning Leadership Institute for teams of five representing the community-based coalitions, to strengthen the coalition's structure, enhance cooperation, cohesiveness and success. The last three years of funding will provide support to initiate, enhance or expand efforts to address specific identified priorities in the coalitions' communities. Grants will total up to $200,000 per grantee over the four years.

NJHI will host four face-to-face applicant information sessions, which will be held on October 29th and 30th.These sessions will give attendees a fuller understanding of what is expected of applicants at the proposal stage, what we hope to accomplish with this initiative, and will also provide some interactive sessions to give attendees a better sense of what the Boundary Spanning Leadership Institute will encompass.
