Aging, Disabilities & Community Programming

Alert: If you, or someone you know, has a disability or access and functional needs, sign up for NJ Register Ready. This allows  New Jersey residents with special needs and their families, friends, caregivers and associates an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergency.
