Conversations with the Cabinet: Commissioner Johnson, NJ Department of Human Services
New Jersey grantmakers devote significant resources – both intellectual and financial – to many of the same focus areas as the Department of Human Services. Some CNJG members invest exclusively in programs related to seniors, aging, mental health, developmental disabilities, healthcare, social services, economically disadvantaged individuals and families, addiction, food insecurity, and people with special needs.
Join Commissioner Carole Johnson (Bio) of the New Jersey Department of Human Services for a candid discussion focusing on current priority areas within NJDHS and possible opportunities for New Jersey’s philanthropic community to partner with state government on areas of mutual concern.
This is an excellent opportunity for funders to share knowledge, insights, and best practices that can help to inform the public sector's strategies for addressing key issues facing the state.
Cost: Free for CNJG Members/$35 for Non Member Grantmakers
Light breakfast refreshments will be served.
This program is open to grantmakers only.
The Department of Human Services (DHS) consists of eight major divisions, plus the office for a fund run by a commission, an office directed by a Governor's Council, and various administrative offices that handle such areas as quality control, risk management, investigations, information systems, licensing and contracts which span the department. Their latest news may be found in the News and Events area on their website.
