Grants to New Jersey nonprofit faith- and community-based organizations to expand organizational capacity. Funding is intended for capacity development, coaching, and technical assistance. The purpose of this program is to strengthen organizations that offer high-quality social services to low-income individuals in the state.
The New Jersey Department of State, Office of Faith Based Initiatives (OFBI), is soliciting applications for Project ATLAS a capacity building program designed to build the sustainability of faith and community based organizations (FBCOs). The purpose of Project ATLAS is to provide capacity building grants, technical assistance and customized coaching, identified by the OFBI that will strengthen the viability and capacity of participating FBCOs to provide quality social services to the community as specified in this announcement.
Capacity building may be defined as “your organization’s ability to identify and prioritize its development goals and achieve specific improvements that help you more effectively fulfill your mission.” Sustainability, which results from ongoing capacity building, is the long-term stability and viability of your organization in the community.
Project ATLAS applicants will establish “high performing work teams,” referred to as Project ATLAS Leadership teams that work with an experienced capacity building coach, identified by the NJ OFBI, to improve FBCO sustainability. A high performing work team is a group of individuals who work interdependently to perform effectively and achieve common goals with each member sharing 100% responsibility for success.
Specific examples of Project ATLAS capacity building and sustainability activities, customized to the specific needs of each organization, are:
The proposed approach will ensure that funds are matched to the developmental needs and funding levels of the organization. A minimum of 50 percent of training and technical assistance to grantees will be in the form of direct and individualized technical assistance to address the identified priority needs of the nonprofit organization (i.e., “one-on-one” assistance to the organizations leadership, key staff, and/or board). The estimated number of hours for customized technical assistance and capacity building will equal or exceed the number of hours of training.
