As part of First Lady Tammy Murphy’s Nurture NJ initiative to make New Jersey the safest and most equitable place in the nation to deliver and raise a baby, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is currently developing a new Maternal and Infant Health Innovation Center (MIHIC) located in the state capital, Trenton.

MIHIC is intended to serve as an anchor for equitable provision of maternal and infant health care services, social services and wraparound supports, data analysis and first-in-class research on maternal health care and equity in care, a training and education site for the perinatal workforce, a catalyst of new innovations to drive improved maternal and infant health outcomes, and serve as a central hub for New Jersey’s stakeholders which include mothers and trusted community actors dedicated to improving the health of New Jersey’s babies and mothers.


Organization Interest form

This form is targeted toward organizations that wish to participate in the Center to deliver direct services in partnership with one of the selected Lead organizations. We particularly encourage organizations with deep experience in the Trenton community and with a track record of culturally competent service delivery that addresses legacies and patterns of systemic discrimination and bias that has led to disparate outcomes in maternal and infant health.   

Expressions of interest are non-binding and purely for informational purposes. All of the contact information you provide on this form will be posted in a list and therefore NJEDA makes no representations as to who will view or use the information provided.
