The New Jersey Food Security Initiative (NJFSI) is launching this Call for Proposals to support implementation of initiatives with strong potential to achieve changes in practices, policies, systems, and/or environments that increase food security and improve nutrition to advance health equity in New Jersey, with impact that can be sustained once grant funding ends.
A total of $1,000,000 is available for four to six one-time awards ranging from $175,000-$225,000. Funding will begin in June 2024 and continue for 15 months, inclusive of an optional three-month planning period.
Funding is available to support community-based organizations and coalitions, state and local government agencies or school districts, and/or universities collaborating at the township, county, region, and/or state level on efforts that are working to advance these NJFSI priorities.
