Personal Assistance Service Program (PASP)

The goal of PASP is to support individuals with disabilities so that they may remain active participants in their community. PASP is a supplemental personal care program designed for New Jersey residents aged 18-70 who have permanent physical disabilities, are capable of directing their own services, and are either employed, preparing for employment, attending school, or involved in community volunteer work.

PASP provides routine, nonmedical personal care assistance based on individual need, up to a maximum of 40 hours per week. PASP eligibility is not-income based. However, there is a sliding scale fee cost share component for some participants depending on the level

of income. 

Here's How It Works

An assessment is completed to determine the number of hours a participant will receive. Those hours are then converted to a cash allowance. The cash allowance, which is managed by a state-contracted fiscal intermediary organization, is used by the participant to purchase required services.

With assistance from a county consultant, participants will develop and follow a cash management plan (CMP), which outlines exactly how their cash allowance will be spent. 

A distinction between PASP and New Jersey's other personal care assistance programs is that PASP requires self-direction; meaning the individual with the disability must direct his/her own services. PASP offers participants choice, flexibility, control, and the opportunity to manage their personal care services.


PASP program participants:

  • Receive a cash allowance every month to purchase their own services
  • Decide exactly which services they need and want
  • Choose who will provide the services
  • Tailor the services to meet their schedule
  • Create their own individualized plan to direct their personal care needs

Personal assistants help with tasks such as:

  • Light Housekeeping
  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Preparing Meals
  • Shopping
  • Driving or Using Public Transportation


Applicants must:

  • Reside in New Jersey
  • Have a permanent physical disability
  • Be between the ages 18 and 70 years old
  • Live in the community
  • Be capable of directing and supervising their own services
  • Be employed, preparing for employment, in school, or actively volunteering in the community

Personal Preference Program (PPP)

The Personal Preference Program (PPP) is an alternate way for individuals to receive their Personal Care Assistant (PCA) services by giving them more choices.

PCA services are non-emergency, health related tasks through our company. Care providers help clients with activities of daily living (ADLs) and with household duties essential to the patient's health and comfort, including bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and light housekeeping.

Using a "Cash & Counseling" approach, along with the idea of "consumer direction," PCA services can accessed under PPP, which allows seniors and people with disabilities to direct and manage their own services.

With a monthly cash allowance, participants work with a consultant to develop a Cash Management Plan (CMP), which helps them decide the services they need and the individuals and agencies they can hire to provide those services. Individuals who are cognitively impaired or unable to make their own decisions may select a representative to make decisions on their behalf.

To help consumers with the financial aspects of the program, PPP also includes Fiscal Management (FM) services. These services will handle all payroll responsibilities for participants and acts as a bookkeeping service.

The Personal Preference Program requires greater individual responsibility. However, it offers its participants more control, flexibility, and choice over the services they receive, in return.

Why Choose the Personal Preference Program? 

PPP allows participants the following privileges:

  • Choose the services they need and want
  • Hire anyone they want to care for them (relatives, friends, neighbors, etc.)
  • Design a service plan that matches their schedule
  • Buy equipment and devices and make home modifications
  • Exercise greater management over their personal care

Using Your Cash Allowance

Your cash allowance may be used for:

  • Purchasing services from an agency
  • Paying a friend or relative to help you
  • Making modifications to your home (such as ramps or chair lifts) that help you live more independently
  • Buying equipment, appliances, technology, or other items that help increase your independence, such as a microwave oven or a front load washing machine that you can easily reach from your wheelchair


To qualify for PPP, applicants must be approved for PCA Services and must need these services for period of at least 6 months. Additionally, they need to be able to self-direct services or choose a representative who can act on their behalf.
