Submit a Grant Application

A. Use this link to start a new application.

B. Use this link to view or edit an application in progress.


When you start a new application, you will be directed to choose one of our application forms. The forms may include:

  1. Requests for initial funding for a project (download form);
  2. Requests for renewal of a project previously funded by HFNJ (download form);
  3. Requests for a special, one-time need in an amount less than $35,000 (download form);
  4. Requests for capital funding to support construction or large equipment purchases (download form);
  5. Requests in response to a specific HFNJ Request for Proposals.

You can work on your proposal online, saving what you have completed and going back to it at a later date/time. No materials, however, should be submitted to the Foundation until ALL of the required information and attachments have been provided.

Please note that you should only post plain, unformatted text into the online application portal. Using HTML tags, bolding, or bullet points will hinder the clarity and readability of your application.

Be sure to thoroughly read our Grant Guidelines page for specific details on our rules for eligibility for funding, and read our Grantee and Applicant Toolkits for tips on creating successful applications.

If you have any questions about submitting your proposal, please contact the Grants Administrator, Kevin McManemin, at or call (973) 921-1210 ext. 1101. If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your proposal within five business days, please contact our offices to verify that your submission has been received.
