Lincoln Township was a short-lived township that existed in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States, from 1867 until 1868.

The Township of Lincoln was formally incorporated as a township by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 6, 1867, from the western portions of Ocean Township.[2]

By another act of the Legislature, effective on May 1, 1868, the township was reannexed to Ocean. Lincoln Township was dissolved after slightly over one year of existence.[2]
