Funding Opportunity for New Jersey Coalitions


NJPN Request for Proposals – Funding for County-wide Public Health Environmental Scan

Grant: The New Jersey Prevention Network (NJPN) is seeking proposals from public health coalitions or organizations interested in partnering with NJPN on activities related to our Community Transformation Grant from CDC.

The focus of NJPN’s Community Transformation Grant is to build capacity throughout our 13 county region (Atlantic, Burlington, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Morris, Passaic, Salem, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren counties) related to public health and chronic disease prevention. Therefore, NJPN is particularly interested in funding coalitions rather than individual agenices or organizations.

Funder: New Jersey Prevention Network.

Eligibility: The following eligibility criteria shall apply:

  • Eligibility for contracts is limited to applicants who are either non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations, government organizations or coalitions. If a coalition wishes to apply and is not a 501(c)(3) corporation, a fiscal sponsor must apply on behalf of the coalition.
  • Applicants must have a New Jersey address and be able to conduct business from a facility located in New Jersey.
  • Applicants must actively work in at least one of the counties for which they are applying for funding.

Amount: NJPN will fund one county partner in each of the 13 counties that are part of our service area OR one partner to service multiple counties within the service area, with a maximum of 13 partners funded. A totaly $10,000 of funding is available per county, and applicants may apply for more than one county. The project period for the required services will tentatively be December 3, 2012 to March 15, 2013.

Additional Information: There will be a webinar on October 1 at 11:00 where applicants will have an opportunity to ask questions related to this RFP. Details on the webinar and how to log in will be sent to all coalitions/organizations who submit a Letter of Intent to Apply.

Letters of Intent are due by September 26, 2012. Letters can be emailed to Diane Liga at or faxed to 732-367-9985.


Deadline: October 26, 2012.
