Utility Assistance

A note from DDD Asst Commissioner Jonathan Seifried.

 

The moratorium on utility shut-offs is ending June 30th and will compound the challenges that some individuals already face when paying for utilities.  In response to this, the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is asking for assistance in publicizing a variety of energy assistance programs.  This will coincide with enhanced Board of Public Utilities outreach during their "Utility Assistance Week” occurring May 17-21, 2021.

Division Update 04-22-2021 - New Update on Day Program Reopening

Hello Division Constituents and Community Partners,

 

As you may be aware, the Department of Human Services’ Division of Developmental Disabilities released day program re-opening requirements on March 15, 2021. 

 

The Division understands that some participants and families are eager for more programs to re-open as soon as possible. In response to such feedback from individuals, families and guardians, and in continuous consultation with the New Jersey Department of Health, today the Division is releasing updated Congregate Day Program Re-Opening Requirements. The newly updated requirements allow providers to elect to open and operate congregate day programs at limited capacity, regardless of the current CALI designation.
