Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC)

Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC) is a program that provides in-home services to seniors, age 60 and over, who require a nursing facility level of care but wish to remain in their homes. JACC includes an array of services designed to supplement the assistance given by the individual’s existing network of family caregivers. Qualified individuals may have the opportunity to hire their own eligible family, friends, or neighbors to provide the care they need. By designing service plans uniquely tailored to the individual, JACC works to enhance the individual’s community care options. JACC also strengthens the ability of caregivers to continue in their vital role as primary support providers. Services available through JACC include the following: care management, personal care assistance, caregiver relief (respite), home modifications, special medical equipment and supplies, chore services, personal emergency response system, home delivered meal services, social adult day care, medical adult day care, and transportation.  JACC has a co-pay based on an individual’s income.

Individuals eligible for this program must:

  • require a nursing facility level of care, but wish to remain at home
  • not participate in other services that provide this type of care
  • meet financial guidelines for income and assets:
    • countable monthly income that is no more than 365% of the Federal Poverty Level ($3,881 for individuals and $5,244 for a couple in 2021) and
    • countable resources at or below $40,000 for an individual or $60,000 for a couple
