About This Event

This session is for service providers who are either contracted by or are interested in being contracted by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families to provide services to children with emotional / behavioral health challenges and/or intellectual / developmental disabilities and their families.

Mollie Greene, Assistant Commissioner for the New Jersey Department of Children and Families, Children’s System of Care, will share the Department’s vision and strategic plan for meeting the needs of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral health care challenges and/or developmental disabilities and their families. Additionally, Program Leads will describe RFPs that the Department anticipates releasing to meet priority service needs. The session will conclude with a question and answer period with the officials present.

Forecast information being shared through web postings and public forums are only projections of what could be actual funding announcements for DCF. Posting the forecast information to the DCF website or sharing forecast information in public provider forums does not in any way obligate DCF to actually make that program a viable funding announcement. DCF can decide at any time to cancel and remove the posted forecast information on the website, if it chooses to do so as a result of not desiring to move forward with awarding grants for the forecasted opportunity.

We recommend that you visit the DCF site at: frequently during the year to check to see what new funding opportunities have been posted to the forecast that could potentially be of interest to your organization. Once the forecasted opportunities are made final as a viable funding announcement, you will be able to complete and submit an application for consideration of funding within the time-frame of the open competition deadline date for any funding announcement you desire at

NJ Chafee Plan

The New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DCF) Office of Adolescent Services (OAS) is responsible for the administration of the John H. Chafee Foster Care Program for Successful Transition to Adulthood, a federal initiative, administered by states, to help current and former foster care youth to achieve self-sufficiency.  States and tribes submit their multi-year plans to the federal Administration for Children & Families, which in turn awards grants to assist with education, employment, financial management, housing, emotional support and assured connections with caring adults for older foster youth who are aging out of the system.

Below, you will find New Jersey’s proposed Chafee plan for 2020-2024.  As part of the federal review, the plan must be made available for public comment for a period of thirty (30) days.  If you would like to offer public comment to provide input and feedback on the direction of New Jersey’s efforts to support foster youth, please email us at

Recodification of all Department Rules from Title 10 of the New Jersey Administrative Code to New Title 3A

Take notice that, the Department of Children and Families (Department) was created by the Department of Children and Families Act, N.J.S.A. 9:3A-1 et seq. (the Act), effective July 1, 2006. The Act transferred all functions, powers, and duties of the Office of Children's Services in the Department of Human Services to the newly-created Department of Children and Families. N.J.S.A. 52:27D-43.9a transferred the Division on Women from the Department of Community Affairs to the Department of Children and Families, effective June 29, 2012. The Department of Children and Families requested, and the Office of Administrative Law agreed to permit, the administrative recodification of the Department's rules from Title 10, Human Services, to the newly created Title 3A, Children and Families, of the New Jersey Administrative Code. These recodifications, along with attendant technical changes to the rule text concerning cross-references, agency names, addresses, etc., are effective January 3, 2017, and shall be manifested in the New Jersey Administrative Code beginning with the 01-03-17 Code Update and continuing until all chapters are so recodified. It is anticipated that approximately two to four chapters will be recodified with each Code Update produced. The table below sets forth the Title 10 chapters being recodified along with their chapter headings and new Title 3A codification. Several chapters will be proposed for amendment to update terminology as determined necessary by the Department at a later time. This notice of administrative changes is published in accordance with N.J.A.C. 1:30-2.7.
