Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP)

This is a program that helps permanently disabled adults to work, go to school, or volunteer.

This is different than traditional home health services. It's a consumer-directed and supervised social service (rather than a health care service).



Step 1.Determine Eligibility

Make sure you're eligible for this program. You must:

  • reside in New Jersey
  • have a permanent physical disability and require assistance with activities of daily living
  • be between the ages 18 and 70
  • live in the community
  • be capable of directing and supervising their own services
  • be employed, preparing for employment through a vocational training program, in school, or actively volunteering in the community for a minimum of 20 hours per month

Step 2.Call Us

Call the Morris County PASP Coordinator at 973-326-7285. We'll do a pre-screening over the phone.

Note: you must do a pre-screening over the phone in order to qualify. Due to how the State of New Jersey handles the PASP program, there is no email address or online application.

Step 3.Fill Out Application

If you qualify, you'll be sent an application in the mail. Fill it out, and return it as instructed.

Step 4.Next Steps

Your application will be reviewed. If you're accepted, you'll be notified by mail.
