Family Support services are intended to help support uncompensated caregivers for individuals who are eligible for DDD-funded services and living in their own homes. Under the direction of the New Jersey Developmental Disabilities Council, Regional Family Support Planning Councils assist DDD in the allocation of funding for these services by making recommendations based on input they receive from families.

DDD evaluates requests for Family Support based on an individual’s need, the services and supports already available and/or being used, and the availability of DDD resources. Family Support is not an entitlement and cannot be guaranteed.  Budget allocations dictate the availability of services.  Families must exhaust any other services to which they are entitled before they can receive assistance through Family Support.  

The following services generally are offered in all regions of the state.  Individual regions may have different options. More information related to Family Support may be found by referencing the Family Support Act of 1993.
