MonmouthCares congratulates the Mercy Center and Neighborhood Connections to Health for being receipients of our 2024-2025 Community Resource Development Funds.

Please check back with us in October to learn more about the 2025-2026 Request for Proposals announcement.

2024-2025 MonmouthCares Community Resource Development Funds Request for Proposals.

The New Jersey Children’s System of Care, Monmouth County, and MonmouthCares are interested in expanding services and programs for youth in the county with emotional, behavioral, intellectual & developmental disability, substance use, and other wellness needs.  This one-time funding of $67,697.70 (less may be applied for) must be utilized in full by June 30, 2025, and will become unavailable to the awardee(s) after that date. Funding is intended to support new or existing activities or services through collaboration with community partners that reduce risks to youth and directly promote well-being, safety, health, and connections at home and in the community. These funds are not intended to purchase services directly for specific individuals or families and funds cannot be used to supplement government contracted services. These funds cannot be used to acquire or maintain fixed assets, such as land, buildings, vehicles, and equipment.

Applicants must commit to working in partnership with MonmouthCares, other system partners, and community-based resources. They must embody the values of the New Jersey Children’s System of Care.

There have been noted gaps and needs in quality, community-based services through various federal, state, and system-wide surveys and needs assessments. MonmouthCares has reviewed county and state data, needs assessments, and local focus groups that have documented areas of need for our county. Applicants considering proposals for this funding must show how their proposed services or activities fill needs cited in the Request for Proposals Packet which is available for download below.

Applicants must agree to submit comprehensive reports as dictated by the Children’s System of Care in the fiscal year the funding is year applied for.

  • Program performance reports including level of service, outcomes, and quantifiable deliverables.
  • Expenditure Reports that include detailed submission of all documents that substantiate funding use (receipts, time logs, invoices, mileage, etc.)

See Request for Proposals Packet for Zoom information.

Final approval of selected projects is required by the NJ Children’s System of Care.
