Healthy Community Development Mini Grants

Just forwarding this along.
Andy B.

The deadline for Healthy Community Development mini grants submission is Wednesday, December 30th at 3:30 pm.

The New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services (NJDHSS), Family Health Services - Office of Nutrition & Fitness (ONF) and the New Jersey Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (NJCPFS) invite applications to implement a Healthy Community Development initiative.

The intent of the mini -grant is to provide seed money to engage the community in local level programming which may enable communities to leverage future funding from other sources. Most grant awards will be for $2500 (twenty five hundred dollars); however, larger grants of up to $10,000 may be awarded based on merit. A total of up to $100,000 will be awarded based on available funding. It is anticipated that 10 - 20 (communities) municipalities will receive an award in 2009 - 2010.

Eligible applicants for this award include New Jersey public and private non profit entities including municipalities, parks and recreation, schools/districts, local health departments, hospitals, YW-YMCA’s and other community based organizations capable of conducting the project as outlined. Only one application per municipality will be awarded. The application must include collaboration between/among at least two agencies (i.e. community/school). A letter of support from collaborating partner/s is required.

Although communities were not required to attend the 3rd Leaders’ Academy for Healthy Community Development on November 13, 2009, additional points will be awarded for attendance. The awards will be made on a competitive basis for applications that focus on policy and environmental change with first consideration given to participants who attended the Leaders’Academy.

The RFA for the Healthy Community Development mini grants is posted on the website at
