Grant Description
Grants to New Jersey nonprofit and for-profit organizations for mental health and addiction services in eligible locations. Funding is intended to ensure that individuals with low income or no income will have access to the services they need to achieve wellness and recovery. Eligible activities serve the residents of Morris County.

The County is committed to supporting agencies that offer client-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented care in a stigma-free environment. Funding may only be billed for a specific unit of service when there is no third-party insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other type of reimbursement, in whole or in part, for that service unit.

Target populations:

  • Individuals age 17 and over in the community who have a serious mental illness including a co-occurring substance use disorder, and are at risk of psychiatric hospitalization or homelessness.
  • Youth (aged 13 – 18) and adults with substance use disorders or co-occurring disorders at risk of substance misuse, including legally involved individuals.  
  • Mental health and/or substance use services for LGBTQ+ community members.
Based on identified priorities in Morris County Human Services Planning Documents, program monitoring, quarterly reports and ongoing requests for services, the Department of Human Services is looking to purchase the following services:
Mental Health/Co-Occurring:
  1. Housing supportive services for those with mental health and/order substance use disorder
  2. Recovery Services, including counseling, outreach, case management, and wrap around services that address multiple needs across systems

  5. Legal advocacy and representation for basic housing, shelter needs
  6. Consumer-Driven, Non-Crisis Services
  7. Youth related mental health/co-occurring services for ages 17+

  9. Safe approach for individuals to access harm reduction (ex. fentanyl testing strips, Narcan, education on safer use, etc.)
  10. Transportation for those with mental health and/or substance use disorders

Substance Use Services: The Department of Human Services will consider applications that provide services within the full American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Continuum, from prevention and early intervention services to treatment services and recovery support.

Special Consideration will be given to the following service areas:
  1. Transportation: Directly provided or linked, priority given to non-medical.
  2. Recovery Support Services: Outreach & case management, relapse prevention, life skills, peer to peer services, employment, and job training services, etc.
