Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP)

Printer-friendly version

The PASP provides routine, non-medical assistance to adults with disabilities who are employed, involved in community volunteer work, or attending school.

Personal assistants help with tasks such as: light house keeping, bathing, dressing, preparing meals, shopping, driving or using public transportation. The total number of hours a person can receive is determined based on individual need, up to a maximum of 40 hrs/week. A distinction between the PASP and other personal assistance programs in NJ is that the PASP requires self direction; meaning the individual with the disability must direct his/her own services.
