New Jersey Health Initiatives: Building a Culture of Health in New Jersey - Communities Moving to Action grants will support existing multi-sector, community-based coalitions that are working to make sustainable systems and policy changes that will result in long-term solutions for healthy living.

Coalitions should use the power of leaders and partnerships to implement strategies that address health barriers, especially social determinants of health.


Applicants must:

  • Be located in New Jersey
  • Represent a community coalition. For the purpose of this initiative, a community could be a town, township, municipality, city, county, tribe, or tribal community
  • Be part of an existing or emerging coalition that has begun working to address community health priorities
  • Be either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3)

    • Local health and human service agencies
    • K-12 education
    • Colleges and universities
    • Hospital systems
    • Faith-based organizations
    • Local government
    • Nonprofits

Projects will be 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 project.
