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 one-time need in an amount less than $25,000 (Presidential Grant Request);
  4. 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.


Each year the Foundation considers a limited number of proposals for funding of less than $25,000.  Such proposals are considered on a rolling basis.  Every proposal must adhere to HFNJ’s Grant Guidelines and be submitted online as indicated above.  Grants considered in this limited, fast-track pool are generally awarded as one-time support and not considered for renewal.  They should address urgent circumstances and/or be time sensitive, or fund limited-time initiatives.  Proposals that request HFNJ support for projects larger in scope will most likely be declined.  Please call Michael Schmidt, Executive Director/CEO, if you have any questions before submitting a Presidential Grant proposal.


The Foundation will accept a limited number of grant requests for funding a multi-year project up to three years. Grants can be in any program area and must outline why a multi-year grant will be helpful for project implementation and demonstrate realistic, clear goals with articulated short- and longer-term goals that can be accomplished within a 2-3-year timeline.

To be eligible to submit a multi-year request, organizations must have a history of successful grant projects with The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey and must have prior approval from the Executive Director/CEO. Organizations that would like to be considered for a multi-year grant should contact our office at (973) 921-1210 to arrange a time to speak with our Executive Director/CEO about this opportunity.
