Department and Branch Recommendations
This section of the Budget includes appropriations, expenditures, core missions and programmatic
evaluation data for the Legislature, State Departments and the Judiciary. A single unified presentation provides a comprehensive view of all of a department’s operations across all fund categories

allocated to various public, private and non--profit agencies for State--supported services. State Aid
comprises recommendations for payments by the State to or on behalf of a local unit of government,
including school districts, municipalities and counties. Capital Construction includes funds for various equipment, renovation and construction of facilities, and infrastructure projects such as roads,
bridges and wastewater treatment systems.
LEGISLATURE
OVERVIEW
Mission and Goals
The Legislature is the State’s highest lawmaking body. It is one of
the three separate and independent branches of government that
make up the checks and balances system created by the New Jersey
Constitution and is empowered to appropriate funds for the operation
of state government. The 40 members of the Senate are elected for a
term of four years, except after the decennial census. The 80 members
of the Assembly are elected for a term of two years. The Office of
Legislative Services, a nonpartisan agency that provides legislators
with economic and budget analyses required for making legislative
decisions, is also a part of the legislative branch. Legislative
commissions assist in the legislative process by providing in--depth
studies, holding public hearings and making recommendations on
select issues as they arise.
permits the State of New Jersey to participate as a member of national
and regional organizations.
The Joint Committee on Public Schools provides an ongoing study
of the system of free public schools -- its financing, administration
and operations.
The State Commission of Investigation probes organized crime and
improprieties in the conduct of publicly--funded programs. The
Commission has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to uncover and
document waste, fraud and abuse at all levels of government via
investigations that have recouped millions of dollars in tax revenues.
The Law Revision Commission simplifies, clarifies and modernizes
New Jersey statutes. It conducts an ongoing review of the statutes in
order to identify areas that require revision and considers suggestions
and recommendations from the American Law Institute, the National
Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws and other
learned bodies as well as from judges, public officials, bar
associations, members of the bar and the general public. The
Commission recommends the correction of inconsistent, obsolete
and redundant statutes and comprehensive modifications of select
areas of the law.
The State Capitol Joint Management Commission ensures the
artistic, historical and architectural integrity of any restoration or
preservation project at the State House, the State House Annex and
adjacent environs, and also manages the Capitol Complex, including
security and janitorial services.

The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Legislature totals $77.6 million,
a decrease of $148,000 or 0.2% under the fiscal 2016 adjusted

Article IV, Section III of the New Jersey State Constitution, are to
establish Senate and Assembly districts and apportion the senators
and members of the General Assembly among them within one
month of receipt by the Governor of the official decennial census
of the United States for New Jersey.
The New Jersey Law Revision Commission (created by P.L.1985,

continually examines general and permanent statutory law and
related judicial decisions to identify defects and anachronisms.
The function of the New Jersey Redistricting Commission is to
formulate congressional districts in New Jersey for the election of
members to the United States House of Representatives. The
districts remain unaltered through the next year ending in zero in

are ruled invalid by New Jersey or United States courts.
The State Capitol Joint Management Commission was created by
P.L.1992, c.67 for the purpose of maintaining, monitoring, and
preserving the architectural, historical, cultural and artistic integrity
of any completed project whose purpose is to restore, preserve or
improve the capitol complex. The complex consists of the State
House, the State House Annex and the adjacent environs. The
eight--member commission is equally balanced with four members
from the executive branch of State government and four members
from the legislative branch.

AGRICULTURE
PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
01. Animal Disease Control. The Division of Animal Health is
responsible for maintaining animal disease surveillance and
control programs to protect the health and well--being of
livestock and poultry by setting standards, issuing licenses to
livestock dealers, auctions, and biologic manufacturers and
distributors, and conducting epidemiological investigations of
livestock and poultry diseases as well as drug residues. These
efforts are supported by the Animal Health Diagnostic
Laboratory, which provides valuable disease surveillance and
detection capabilities.
In the area of emergency management, the Department
responds to agricultural impacts from disasters and is a prime
support agency in the care of pets and livestock. The
Department is responsible for providing foods from the
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to
sheltering sites for congregate feeding and oversees plant
and/or animal diseases that may impact the state’s agricultural
operations.
02. Plant Pest and Disease Control. The food crop, forests and
other plant resources of the state are protected against
injurious plant insects and diseases. Surveillance programs
identify new or introduced plant pests. Significant infestations
are managed with careful chemical treatment and/or
biological control programs. The beneficial insect rearing
laboratory mass produces and releases insects into the
agricultural or forest environment which feed upon insect
pests or invasive weeds. Honeybees are inspected to control
the spread of disease and improve colony health. Plant
nurseries are inspected to ensure plants sold are free from
insects and disease. Certification programs facilitate the
interstate and foreign trade of plants and plant products.
03. Agricultural and Natural Resources. The Division of Rural
Resources is charged to maintain, conserve and enhance New
Jersey’s rural and agricultural resources and to control
erosion, sedimentation and nonpoint sources of water
pollution. The primary objective is to improve agricultural
productivity and viability while maintaining environmental
quality. The Division administers the Agricultural Education/
Future Farmers of America program, the Office of
Aquaculture Coordination, the Farmland Assessment program
in coordination with the Division of Taxation, agricultural
recycling and building code assistance programs related to
agriculture, and is engaged in regulatory and land use
planning issues.
05. Food and Nutrition Services. The Division of Food and
Nutrition includes Child Nutrition programs and USDA Food
Distribution programs.
The Division administers federal Child Nutrition programs in
public and nonpublic schools, residential and non--residential
childcare institutions, day care centers, recreation centers and
other agencies that are eligible to participate. Division
responsibilities include developing, disseminating, evaluating
and approving all pertinent program documents required for
participation; providing technical assistance in the areas of
implementation, facilities improvement and food service
methods; on--site monitoring of programs for compliance with
State and federal regulations; and providing financial
assistance through a reimbursement system.
The USDA Foods Distribution Program receives, handles,
stores, and distributes USDA Foods to State, county and
municipal institutions, schools and emergency feeding
organizations. It also facilitates the processing of some of the
USDA Foods into products that meet meal pattern
requirements. Inspections are conducted in all organizations
and institutions for compliance. The Emergency Food
Assistance Program (TEFAP) distributes USDA Foods to
needy citizens through a network of food centers, food banks
and food pantries.
06. Marketing and Development Services. The Division of
Marketing and Development provides an array of marketing
and regulatory services that benefit the agricultural
community and the public. The Bureau of Market
Development and Product Promotion and the Economic
Development section help farmers access new markets, as
well as work to improve bottom--line efficiencies on the farm.
The Jersey Fresh program, aimed at domestic and foreign
consumers, assists New Jersey farmers in expanding their
market share. Individual product promotions are also
conducted by nine agricultural commodity councils.
Programs for the promotion of the New Jersey horse industry
are conducted with funds derived from a small percentage of
the pari--mutuel handle at both the thoroughbred and standard
bred racetracks. Growth of the horse breeding industry is
encouraged through monies awarded in the form of stakes
purses and breeders’ awards.
The Agricultural Chemistry program determines compliance
with the stated contents of animal feeds, fertilizers and liming
materials offered for sale for farm and non--farm use.
The dairy program is responsible for fostering a stable and
competitive dairy industry, including the regulation and
enforcement of the production, processing, distribution and
sales of fluid dairy products. In addition, this program licenses
all outlets that sell or distribute milk in New Jersey. Also, this
program handles all laboratory evaluations relevant to the
testing of milk for antibiotics, components, quality and
bacteria to ensure that the lab is operating in accordance with
Food and Drug Administration regulations of the Pasteurized
Milk Ordinance.
The voluntary Third Party Audit program, operated in
conjunction with the USDA, allows growers, packers and
shippers of fresh produce to verify to buyers that they are
growing, harvesting, packing and shipping their product in a
safe and sanitary manner by using standardized agricultural
and handling practices.
The Department is coordinating with the Department of
Health to plan for the implementation of the federal Food
Safety Modernization Act, which will increase inspections at
food processing facilities and, for the first time, require farms
to have food safety plans that will be available for inspection
as well.
As an accredited certifying agent under the USDA National
Organic Program, the State Department of Agriculture’s
Organic Certification Program certifies handlers and producers to sell agricultural products under the organic designation.
08. Farmland Preservation. The State Agriculture Development
Committee (SADC) administers New Jersey’s Farmland
Preservation program and promotes innovative approaches to
maintaining the viability of agriculture.
The SADC coordinates with participating counties, municipalities and nonprofit organizations to purchase development
rights from farm owners in order to permanently deed restrict
those farms for agricultural purposes. Eight--year preservation
programs offer participating farm owners certain benefits of
the permanent program, but no monetary compensation. The
SADC also administers the New Jersey Right to Farm
Program that protects farmers from unnecessary constraints

budget estimate for fiscal 2017 reflects the number of positions funded.
(a) In fiscal 2014, there were fewer Jersey Fresh commodities inspections due to a condensed growing season. In fiscal 2015,
the United States Department of Agriculture conducted the majority of shell egg grading inspections in NJ resulting in a
reduced number of inspections conducted by the NJ Department of Agriculture.

NOTES
BANKING AND INSURANCE
OVERVIEW
Mission
The mission of the Department of Banking and Insurance is to
regulate the banking, insurance and real estate industries in a
professional and timely manner. Its aim is to protect and educate
consumers and promote the growth, financial stability and efficiency
of the industries it regulates.
Goals
The Department’s goals are to ensure the solvency of financial
institutions through regular examinations and analysis; protect the
public from unlawful practices by insurers, financial institutions and
real estate licensees; promptly investigate complaints filed by
consumers and aggressively prosecute violators; issue licenses to
qualified individuals and companies to provide banking, insurance
and real estate services to New Jersey citizens; improve the
efficiency of rate and form review; enforce the New Jersey Insurance
Fraud Prevention Act; and apply technology to more effectively
interact with the public and regulated industries.
The Department consists of two main divisions: The Division of
Banking is responsible for supervising, regulating and ensuring the
solvency of the 71 State--chartered banks and 16 credit unions.
Within the Division, the Office of Consumer Finance regulates 3,250
consumer finance licensees and 15,588 residential mortgage
licensees, and the Real Estate Commission oversees 85,596 real
estate licensees. The Division of Insurance regulates 199,141
insurance licensees. Within the Division, the Office of Solvency
Regulation monitors 3,256 insurance companies licensed in New
Jersey, including 663 domestic companies selling insurance products
to New Jersey citizens. The Life & Health and the Property &
Casualty units within the Insurance Division oversee premium rates
and policy forms issued by insurers for life, health, automobile,
homeowners and medical malpractice insurance. The Bureau of
Fraud Deterrence administratively investigates allegations of
insurance fraud and pursues civil penalties against those found in
violation of the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act. The
Bureau also is charged with implementing programs to prevent
insurance fraud and abuse, and cooperating with the Attorney
General in the investigation and prosecution of criminal violations.
Also associated with the Department are the Individual and Small
Employer Health Coverage programs and various advisory boards
and commissions.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Department of Banking and
Insurance totals $64 million, the same level as the fiscal 2016
adjusted appropriation.

06. Bureau of Fraud Deterrence. (Formerly Insurance Fraud
Prosecution and Prevention) This program is funded by a
dedicated assessment on the insurance industry which funds
both the Bureau of Fraud Deterrence (BFD) in the Department
of Banking and Insurance and the Office of the Insurance
Fraud Prosecutor (OIFP) in the Department of Law & Public
Safety. Both entities investigate allegations of insurance fraud
in a coordinated fashion, in order to fully develop the facts
and evidence, so that the State can make a reasoned decision
as to how to globally address each alleged scheme and
individual case: by civil and/or criminal prosecution and/or
administrative professional licensing sanction. Both entities
coordinate with the insurance industry’s Special Investigation
Units and their affiliates, as well as other law enforcement and
regulatory agencies to implement the statewide enforcement
strategy addressing insurance fraud in its many forms.
Information is collected and analyzed about persons and
entities alleged to be engaging in insurance fraud--related
conduct in order to assess the prosecutorial merit and to
support actual criminal, civil or administrative actions.
BFD conducts civil investigations, imposes civil penalties
payable to the General Fund, and orders restitution payable to
victim insurance carriers. Other activities related to fraud
prevention consist of audits of insurance companies, review of
the companies’ fraud prevention and detection plans, outreach
with the insurance industry and its affiliates, anti--fraud
education seminars and support of the civil penalties
collection process related to insurance fraud.
OIFP conducts criminal investigations and prosecutions,
which can lead to prison sentences, fines payable to the
General Fund and restitution payable to victim insurance
companies. OIFP also includes the State’s Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit, which is separately funded. Under the New
Jersey False Claims Act (N.J.S.A.2A:32C--13), a percentage

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
OVERVIEW
Mission
In partnership with New Jersey’s communities, the Department of
Children and Families (DCF) ensures the safety, well--being and
success of New Jersey’s children and families.
their families. CSOC seeks to serve children and families in the least
restrictive, clinically appropriate means available, striving to keep
children in their own homes, in their own schools and in their own
communities.
With a staff of approximately 6,600 employees, DCF encompasses
Child Protection and Permanency, Children’s System of Care,
Family and Community Partnerships, the Office of Education, the
Division on Women, Adolescent Services, Training and Professional
Development, Performance Management and Accountability and the
Centralized Child Abuse/Neglect Hotline.
Family and Community Partnerships (FCP) support the prevention
of child abuse by strengthening families through a statewide network
of Family Success Centers, home visiting initiatives and
school--based youth programs. The strong emphasis on primary
prevention is designed to reduce the need for protective services.
The Division on Women (DOW) advances the public discussion of
issues critical to the women of New Jersey and provides leadership
in the formulation of public policy in the development, coordination
and evaluation of programs and services for women. DOW strives
to reduce the incidence of domestic violence and sexual assault and
provides support to survivors through a statewide network of
county--based agencies. Additionally, DOW supports educational
and empowerment opportunities for New Jersey’s women through a
network of displaced homemaker programs.
DCF focuses on partnering with children, youth, families and
communities to achieve child and family safety, support, well--being
and success. DCF incorporates the best thinking of New Jersey
stakeholders, frontline workers and supervisors to achieve positive
results and improvements in supporting New Jersey’s women,
children, youth and families. Current priorities include reducing the
incidence of child abuse and neglect, ensuring permanency for
children who enter out--of--home care, managing outcomes by data,
continuing the integration of a system of care for children with
behavioral, intellectual and developmental disabilities and co--occurring disorders, supporting programs and services for women and
adolescents in the transition to adulthood.
The Office of Education (OOE) helps children and young adults, ages
3 to 21, with disabilities or behavioral challenges, as well as other
at--risk students. It provides 12--month education programs and
services that focus on the goal of mainstreaming children to school
and community life.
Goals
DCF operates Child Protection and Permanency, Children’s System
of Care, Family and Community Partnerships, the Office of
Education, the Division on Women and Adolescent Services.
Adolescent Services is responsible for coordinating service delivery
to support youth who are aging out of the DCF system and
transitioning into adulthood.
Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P), DCF’s largest operating
unit, meets the federal requirements for New Jersey’s official child
protection and child welfare agency. Its mission is to ensure the
safety, permanency and well--being of New Jersey’s most vulnerable
children and to strengthen families. CP&P investigates allegations of
child abuse and neglect and arranges for child protection and family
treatment, if necessary.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Department of Children and
Families totals $1.120 billion, an increase of $7.1 million or 0.6%
over the fiscal 2016 adjusted appropriation of $1.113 billion.
To serve more individuals through family and community--centric
supports, $28.3 million of new State funding for CSOC is provided
in fiscal 2017. The investments in CSOC include $12.7 million for
Out--of--Home Treatment services, $8.4 million for Intensive
In--Home Behavioral Assistance and $6.1 million for Care

PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
01. Child Protection and Permanency. CP&P investigates
allegations of abuse or neglect, responds to voluntary requests
for family services and provides services to children found to
have been abused or neglected.
As part of its overall child welfare reform efforts, New Jersey
continues to invest in the State Central Registry, the statewide
child protection hotline that operates 24--hours a day, 7--days a
week, taking calls from the public regarding child safety. The
hotline also receives calls about the well--being of families
and requesting family social services.
8. To serve children and youth with emotional, behavioral and
substance use disorder challenges, and intellectual and
developmental disabilities in a family--centered, community-based environment.
9. To improve outcomes for vulnerable children and families by
providing critical mental health services, such as 24/7 mobile
crisis response, care management, out--of--home treatment and
family support.
Family Support Services: Family support services include
services provided to families and children in their own homes
as well as to foster and adoptive families and children in
out--of--home placement. Of the children in the active CP&P
caseload, 80% receive services in their homes. Services are
provided to the children individually, to parents and to the
family as a whole. Family support includes a wide variety of
services designed to assist families in crisis and preserve and
strengthen families and communities. Family support services
are intended to reduce the need for more intensive services
and promote independence and self--sufficiency. Support
includes homemaker services, transportation assistance,
psychological/therapeutic services, day treatment, companionship, and legal and health related services.
10. To support evidence--based clinical practices at the core of
CSOC’s service delivery system.
11. To continue ongoing development of the Contracted Systems
Administrator to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of
CSOC’s single point of entry model, which matches the
correct intervention services to the needs of individual youth
and families.
12. To continue transforming the State’s child abuse prevention,
family support, outreach and early intervention systems into
an integrated network of community--based, family--centered
and culturally--responsive services.
Permanency: DCF’s goal is to achieve permanency for every
child in out--of--home placement. The majority of children in
New Jersey who enter foster care return home. For those who
do not, DCF must identify a new “forever family.” Supporting
a child can be expensive and many families willing to assume
responsibility face financial challenges impeding their ability
to adopt or assume guardianship of a child. New Jersey’s
adoption and Kinship Legal Guardianship subsidy programs
represent best practice across the country and support families
who step forward to provide loving, permanent homes.
13. To demonstrate improved outcomes for vulnerable children
and families who have benefited from critical primary,
secondary and tertiary prevention and family support services.
14. To strengthen families by providing grants and technical
assistance to community groups and agencies, increasing their
capacity to support and serve families, building on these
families’ strengths to prevent family crises.
Placement: Placement services is the umbrella term for the
out--of--home placements available to children in CP&P
custody. (Note: this section does not include placements for
CP&P children with behavioral, intellectual or developmental
challenges who are served by CSOC.) New Jersey has a
strong commitment to both kin and non--kin placements.
Research consistently demonstrates that community and
family--based placements produce better outcomes for most
children. Family--based placements include resource family
and treatment homes. Congregate care settings provide
services for children with special needs, such as substance use
disorders, developmental disabilities or complex health
challenges.
A small number of older youth live in
independent living settings. Children in crisis may be placed
in temporary emergency placements while permanent homes
are identified.
15. To implement a statewide plan to prevent child abuse and
neglect and promote family success by collaborating with the
Division of Family and Community Partnerships and the New
Jersey Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect.
16. To collaborate with other State departments such as Human
Services, Health, Education, Labor and Workforce Development and other State agencies to leverage resources and
deliver prevention services.
17. To coordinate programs and services for the women of New
Jersey and serve as a planning agency for the development of
policy, new programs and services with the underlying theme
of ensuring rights and opportunities for all New Jersey
women.
18. To administer a statewide network of agencies to prevent and
support survivors of domestic violence and sexual violence.
Adolescent Services: DCF is focusing on the needs of its
aging--out and adolescent youth by developing a comprehensive array of services and initiatives to help youth successfully
transition to adulthood and become healthy contributing
members of society.
19. To administer and deliver educational programs and services
to eligible students in State operated and contracted facilities
and to provide educational funding and oversight to students
determined by the Department of Education to be the
responsibility of the State.
Staffing: Sufficient staffing is critical to CP&P’s ability to
provide quality investigatory, protective and permanency
services. An element of a federal class action lawsuit against
New Jersey’s child welfare system called for smaller
caseloads that comport with best practice. New Jersey has
made substantial investments in caseworker staff to sustain
reduced caseloads.
20. To ensure case carrying staff receive in--service training
through the Training Academy in partnership with New
Jersey’s colleges and universities and to continue delivering
cross--departmental equal employment opportunities as well
as new worker, supervisor and investigator training.

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
02. Children’s System of Care. CSOC places an emphasis on
the family or caregiver having a central role in the health and
well--being of children. DCF involves families by valuing and
promoting advice and recommendations from the family and
provides families tools and support to create successful life
experiences for their children. The system enables families to
access behavioral health care without surrendering custody of
their children, encouraging strong family engagement. CSOC
continues to integrate the provision of substance use disorder
services and services for children and youth with intellectual
and developmental disabilities into its existing system of care.
CSOC contracts with community agencies to provide Mobile
Response and Stabilization Services throughout the State.
Operating 24--hours a day, 7--days a week, Mobile Response
and Stabilization Services respond quickly when a child
exhibits emotional or behavioral challenges that threaten to
disrupt current living arrangements. Mobile Response
provides face--to--face crisis response within one hour of
notification, stabilizing the child’s behavior and avoiding
family disruption or loss of placement.
Family Support Organization services provide direct
family--to--family peer support, education, advocacy and other
services to family members of children with special needs,
including emotional and behavioral challenges, substance use
disorders, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Family--run, county--based Family Support Organizations are
not case management agencies; they provide support and
management information to families so they can self--manage
their children’s care.
In--community services are therapeutic services delivered in a
child’s home or community. In--community services help
stabilize the child in his or her home, reducing the need for
out--of--home treatment services, such as residential treatment.
Services are flexible and can be individualized to the needs of
the child and family.
03. Family and Community Partnerships. FCP services focus
on primary prevention in key areas: early childhood services,
family support services and school--linked services.
The key to overall child welfare is a robust commitment to
supporting family success and strengthening communities by
creating conditions that prevent abuse and neglect and allow
children to flourish. FCP funds primary and secondary child
abuse prevention efforts across New Jersey, focusing
resources on the unique needs of families before child
maltreatment occurs. Essential programs FCP will continue to
support include: (1) home visitation services for new mothers,
ensuring families with the most need access the parenting and
coping skills necessary for successful parenthood; (2)
strengthening families through early care and education; (3)
family support initiatives such as community--based Family
Success Centers and Kinship Navigator Services to keep
children with families, enhance local services for families in
need and divert lower--risk families from CP&P; and (4)
school--based services that allow students and families to
D--35
receive social, health and wrap--around services on school
campuses, as well as the Teen Helpline to promote healthy
youth development by providing immediate interactive,
empathetic and respectful services for adolescents with
linkage to information and services that address the social and
health needs of youth.
Women’s Programs: The Division on Women (DOW)
administers grant programs for displaced homemakers,
domestic and sexual violence programs, information hotlines
and women’s shelters and carries out multiple planning and
other activities to expand rights and opportunities for all New
Jersey women. The DOW has a successful outreach program
to statewide women’s organizations, including an information
distribution service on issues and programs pertinent to
women, community--based organizations and the general
public.
04. Education Services. The Office of Education (OOE)
administers and delivers educational programs and services to
students in DCF Regional Schools as well as other DCF and
Department of Human Services operated and contracted
facilities. Students have severe cognitive, emotional and
behavioral disabilities, or are pregnant or parenting teens or
are otherwise “at--risk.” OOE also maintains school district
responsibility for providing educational funding and services
to students with no New Jersey District of Residence, as
determined by the Department of Education.
05. Child Welfare Training Academy Services and Operations. The New Jersey Child Welfare Training Academy
delivers pre--service training for new recruits, investigator
training for intake staff, supervisory training for all new
supervisors, and new staff training. Instruction balances
classroom training, practicum and training units in the field.
Focused on these three critical areas, DCF has partnered with
a consortium of New Jersey’s colleges and universities to
deliver required in--service training needs of staff.
06. Safety and Security Services. Safety and security services
provides funds to utilize the Department of Human Services
Police to provide escort and intervention services for
department staff and clients. These funds also support
enhanced security measures at local offices throughout the
State.
99. Administration and Support Services. Administration and
support services in each program classification directs and
supports DCF’s divisions and offices, including CP&P area
and local offices, the Child Welfare Training Academy, and
the other operations and facilities administered by CP&P,
CSOC, FCP, DOW and OOE. Included is the administration
of purchase of service contracts to ensure compliance with
DCF policies and requirements; human resources administration; planning, control and evaluation of internal operations;
technological support; facilities management; legal, legislative and communication services; and technical expertise in
fiscal operations.

COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
OVERVIEW
Mission
The Department of Community Affairs’ (DCA) organizational
purpose is perhaps the broadest of all the executive agencies. It
functions in a variety of ways to help communities to be safe, healthy
and economically viable as well as attractive to residents and visitors
alike. The DCA offers its resources to local officials, nonprofit
community organizations, businesses and individuals. The Department helps municipalities contend with the mandates of change that
are critical to sustaining and improving the quality of life in the state.
The DCA delivers administrative guidance, financial support,
technical assistance and other services to address ongoing issues of
public concern including fire and building safety, housing assistance,
community planning and development, local government management and finance, and recovery from Super Storm Sandy.
New Jersey Historic Trust and the Government Records Council.
Other DCA affiliates include the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage
Finance Agency and the New Jersey Redevelopment Authority.
These authorities do not rely on any direct funding from the State
Treasury to operate, administer or fund capital projects.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Department of Community
Affairs totals $822.8 million, an increase of $20.2 million or 2.5%
over the fiscal 2016 adjusted appropriation of $802.6 million.
Municipal Aid
The fiscal 2017 budget provides over $1.5 billion in municipal aid to
New Jersey’s 565 municipalities, about $737 million of which is
budgeted in the DCA. In fiscal 2017, $623.1 million is recommended
for Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid (CMPTRA). In
addition, a portion of the CMPTRA appropriation will support
municipal aid provided from the Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax
Relief Fund, appropriated at $788.5 million in the Department of the
Treasury. Combined, these two programs provide over $1.4 billion to
municipal governments.
This budget also recommends $107.4 million for the Transitional Aid
to Localities program. The DCA awards Transitional Aid through a
competitive application process and requires recipient municipalities
to submit to additional State oversight as well as implement cost
controls and reforms that will reduce their reliance on this aid in the
future.
Goals
The DCA is divided into five divisions designed to ensure safe,
affordable housing and sustainable, environmentally conscious
development to address the long--term needs of New Jersey’s
residents and communities, and to provide resources for local
governments. The divisions within the DCA are: the Division of
Codes and Standards, the Division of Fire Safety, the Division of
Housing and Community Resources, the Division of Local
Government Services, and the Sandy Recovery Division.
Organizationally, the DCA also includes the following in--but--not--of
affiliate agencies that receive funding through the State budget: the

on or before August 1, 40% of the total amount due; September 1, 30% of the total amount due; October 1, 10% of the total amount
due; November 1, 5% of the total amount due; December 20 for municipalities operating under a calendar fiscal year; 15% of the total
amount due; and June 1 for municipalities operating under the State fiscal year, 15% of the total amount due; provided, however, that
notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of Local Government Services, in consultation
with the Commissioner of Community Affairs and the State Treasurer, may direct the Director of the Division of Budget and
Accounting to provide such payments on an accelerated schedule if necessary to ensure fiscal stability for a municipality.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, from the amounts received from the appropriation to the
Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid program and received from amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal
Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account, each municipality shall be required to
distribute to each fire district within its boundaries the amount received by the fire district from the Supplementary Aid for Fire
Services program pursuant to the provisions of the fiscal year 1995 annual appropriations act, P.L.1994, c.67, less an amount
proportional to reductions in the combined total amount received by the municipality from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax
Relief Aid and from the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” since fiscal year 2008.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidated Municipal
Property Tax Relief Aid shall be distributed in the same amounts, and to the same municipalities that received funding pursuant to the
previous fiscal year’s annual appropriations act; provided further, however, that from the amount hereinabove appropriated there are
transferred to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account such amounts as were determined for fiscal year 2003,
fiscal year 2006, fiscal year 2007, fiscal year 2008, fiscal year 2009, fiscal year 2010, fiscal year 2012, fiscal year 2013, fiscal year
2014, fiscal year 2015, and fiscal year 2016 pursuant to subsection e. of section 2 of P.L.1997, c.167 (C.52:27D--439), as amended by
P.L.1999, c.168; and except that the amount of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid received by a municipality shall be
increased by such amounts of Transitional Aid to Localities deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid by
the Director of the Division of Local Government Services in the previous fiscal year.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government Services shall
take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that proportional amounts of the Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid and
the amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief
Fund” account appropriated to offset losses from business personal property tax that would have otherwise been used for the support
of public schools will be used to reduce the school property tax levy for those affected school districts with the remaining State Aid
used as municipal property tax relief. The chief financial officer of the municipality shall pay to the school districts such amounts as
may be due by December 31.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the release of the final 5% or $500, whichever is greater, of the
total annual amount due for the current fiscal year from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to municipalities is subject
to the following condition: the municipality shall submit to the Director of the Division of Local Government Services a report
describing the municipality’s compliance with the “Best Practices Inventory” established by the Director of the Division of Local
Government Services and shall receive at least a minimum score on such inventory as determined by the Director of the Division of
Local Government Services; provided, however, that the director may take into account the particular circumstances of a municipality
in computing such score. In preparing the Best Practices Inventory, the director shall identify best municipal practices in the areas of
general administration, fiscal management, and operational activities, as well as the particular circumstances of a municipality, in
determining the minimum score acceptable for the release of the final 5% or $500, whichever is greater, of the total annual amount
due for the current fiscal year, but in no event shall amounts be withheld with respect to municipal practices occurring prior to the
issuance of the Best Practices Inventory unless related to a municipal practice identified in the Best Practices Inventory established in
the previous fiscal year.
The Director of the Division of Local Government Services may permit any municipality that received Regional Efficiency Aid Program
funds pursuant to the annual appropriations act for fiscal year 2010, P.L.2009, c.68, to use a portion of Consolidated Municipal
Property Tax Relief Aid to provide “Regional Efficiency Aid Program” benefits pursuant to P.L.1999, c.61 (C.54:4--8.76 et seq.).
The amount hereinabove appropriated for the County Prosecutor Funding Initiative Pilot Program shall be distributed as follows: Camden
County, $895,000; Essex County, $1,811,000; Hudson County, $802,500; and Mercer County, $491,500.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidation
Implementation shall be allocated to provide reimbursement to local government units that consolidate pursuant to any law, including
but not limited to P.L.2007, c.63 (C.40A:65--1 et seq.) and P.L.2009, c. 118 (C.54:1--86 et seq.), or to a municipality that is wholly
annexed by another municipality pursuant to N.J.S.40A:7--1 et seq., for non--recurring costs that the Director of the Division of Local
Government Services, or in the case of a school district consolidation the Commissioner of Education, determines to be necessary to
implement such consolidation or annexation, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting;
provided, however, that in addition to the amounts hereinabove appropriated, there are appropriated such additional amounts as are
determined to be necessary for reimbursement of non--recurring costs associated with local government unit consolidations, subject to
the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.
Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities, an amount may be allocated by the Director of the Division of
Local Government Services to provide short--term financial assistance to a local government unit that is determined by the director to
be experiencing financial distress caused by the destruction or loss of a major local business ratable. For purposes of this paragraph, a
“major local business ratable” means one or more related parcels of property owned by a single business entity, classified as
commercial or industrial, which comprised the largest assessed valuation of any one or more line items of taxable property in a
municipality, or generated an annual PILOT payment in excess of 10% of the total municipal levy, or is otherwise determined by the
director to be of such significance to a municipality that its destruction or loss has resulted in financial distress; provided, however,
that notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government
D--56
COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
Services may direct that part of any such allocation be paid to an affected school district or county, or to both, in the same manner as
if the award of Transitional Aid were raised as revenue from the municipal tax levy; and provided further that a local government unit
determined to be experiencing financial distress because of the loss or destruction of a major local business ratable shall not be
required to be subject to any additional conditions, requirements, orders, or other operational efficiency or oversight measures
authorized pursuant to P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D--118.42a), except as determined to be appropriate by the Director of the Division of
Local Government Services.
The amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities is subject to the following condition: notwithstanding the
provisions of R.S.43:21--14, or any other law or regulation to the contrary, the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development,
in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is authorized to enter into individualized payment plan agreements
with municipalities that receive Transitional Aid for the reimbursement of unemployment benefits paid to former employees of such
municipal government units, at reasonable interest rates based on current market conditions, and on such other terms and conditions
as may be determined to be appropriate by the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development. Any municipality that enters
into an individualized payment plan agreement pursuant to this section shall be required to expend all funds budgeted for this activity
remaining as of the last day of its budget year for the repayment of outstanding obligations under the plan.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to
Localities shall be allocated to provide short--term financial assistance where needed to help a municipality that is in serious fiscal
distress meet immediate budgetary needs and regain financial stability. A municipality shall be deemed to be eligible for transitional
aid if it is identified by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services as experiencing serious fiscal distress where the
director determines that, despite local officials having implemented substantive cost reduction strategies, there continue to exist
conditions of serious fiscal distress, which may include but shall not be limited to: substantial structural or accumulated deficits;
ongoing reliance on non--recurring revenues; limited ability to raise supplemental non--property tax revenues; extraordinary demands
for public safety appropriations; and other factors indicating a constrained ability to raise sufficient revenues to meet budgetary
requirements that substantially jeopardizes the fiscal integrity of the municipality. Municipalities seeking transitional aid shall file an
application on a form prescribed by the director, which application, among other things, shall set forth the minimum criteria that must
be met in order for an application to be considered by the director for a determination of eligibility. The director shall determine
whether a municipality which files an application meeting such minimum criteria is in serious fiscal distress, and, if so, what amount
of transitional aid should be provided to address the municipality’s serious fiscal distress. The transitional aid shall be provided to the
municipality subject to the provisions of subsection a. of section 1 of P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D--118.42a); provided, however, that an
amount of Transitional Aid to Localities as determined by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services for a
municipality may be deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid in an amount not in excess of the amount
of Transitional Aid to Localities such municipality received in the previous fiscal year and shall not reduce the amount of
Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid such municipality shall receive for the current fiscal year. Provided, however, if the
Director of the Division of Local Government Services deems an amount of Transitional Aid to Localities for a municipality as
constituting Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid pursuant to this provision, that municipality is not relieved from
compliance with the requirements for transitional aid.
Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection d. of section 29 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C--29) or subsection d. of section 30 of P.L.1999,
c.152 (C.13:8C--30), or any law or regulation to the contrary, all payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by the
State and non--profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be retained by the municipality and not apportioned
in the same manner as the general tax rate of the municipality.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by
the State and non--profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be provided only to municipalities whose
payments received in fiscal year 2010 exceeded $5,000 and shall be provided at two--thirds of the payment amount provided in fiscal
year 2010.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, any qualifying municipality, as defined in section 1 of P.L.1978,
c.14 (C.52:27D--178) for the previous fiscal year, shall continue to be a qualifying municipality thereunder during the current fiscal
year.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, whenever funds appropriated as State Aid and payable to any
municipality, which municipality requests and receives the approval of the Local Finance Board, such funds may be pledged as a
guarantee for payment of principal and interest on any bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to section 11 of P.L.2003, c.15
(C.40A:2--8.1) and any tax anticipation notes issued pursuant to N.J.S.40A:4--64 by such municipality. Such funds, if so pledged,
shall be made available by the State Treasurer upon receipt of a written notification by the Director of the Division of Local
Government Services that the municipality does not have sufficient funds available for prompt payment of principal and interest on
such notes, and shall be paid by the State Treasurer directly to the holders of such notes at such time and in such amounts as specified
by the director, notwithstanding that payment of such funds does not coincide with any date for payment otherwise fixed by law.
The State Treasurer, in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is empowered to direct the Director of the Division of
Budget and Accounting to transfer appropriations from any State department to any other State department as may be necessary to
provide a loan for a term not to exceed 180 days to a local government unit faced with a fiscal crisis, including but not limited to a
potential default on tax anticipation notes.
Notwithstanding the provisions of N.J.S.40A:4--39 or any other law or regulation to the contrary, a county that assumes responsibility for
the provision of local police services in one or more municipalities utilizing a new or expanded county police force may display the
anticipated revenues and appropriations associated with such county police force in its annual budget by annexing to that budget a
statement describing the sources and amounts of anticipated dedicated revenues and appropriating those dedicated amounts for the
purposes of the county police force.

Correctional Facility substance use disorder treatment program will
be licensed by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction
Services (DMHAS).
The fiscal 2017 budget recommendation for State prison facilities
totals $774.8 million, a decrease of $6.4 million under the fiscal 2016
adjusted appropriation of $781.2 million. A continual decline in the
inmate population has led the Department to consolidate prison
wings and reduce costs.

Support totals $168.8 million, an increase of $904,000 from the fiscal
2016 adjusted appropriation of $167.9 million.

Direction and Management totals $18.9 million, a decrease of
$946,000 under the fiscal 2016 adjusted appropriation of $19.8
million.
State Parole Board
The State Parole Board’s mission is to promote the effective and
efficient assessment of inmates prior to parole and the efficient
supervision of parolees after they have attained parole status. The
Division of Parole is responsible for monitoring parolee compliance
with special release conditions imposed by the State Parole Board
and the collection of fines, penalties and restitution payments owed
by parolees.
The fiscal 2017 budget for the State Parole Board totals $98.4
million, a decrease of $923,000 under the fiscal 2016 adjusted
appropriation of $99.3 million.
Funding supports various alternative programs to incarceration
including the Re--Entry Substance Abuse Program, the Stages to
Enhance Parolee Success Program and the Community Resource
Centers. Funding also supports the Electronic Monitoring/Home
Confinement program, the Sex Offender Management Unit and the
Satellite--Based Monitoring of Sex Offenders Program (GPS).
The Department of Corrections consists of three major program
areas: Operations, Programs and Community Services, and
Administration. County jails, community treatment programs and
State correctional facilities, which are diverse and unique in their
operations, house approximately 21,000 inmates in minimum,
medium and maximum security levels. The Adult Diagnostic and
Treatment Center operates a rehabilitative program for habitual sex
offenders. The Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, New Jersey’s only
correctional institution for women, houses inmates at all security
levels. Additionally, the Department of Corrections is responsible for
housing civilly committed sex offenders with treatment provided by
the Department of Human Services.
The Division of Operations is responsible for security, management
and operations of all State prisons and correctional facilities. The
Division of Programs and Community Services provides institutional
program opportunities for offenders, including academic and
vocational educational programs, substance use disorder treatment
and transitional services. Additionally, the Division contracts with
private and nonprofit providers throughout the state to provide
community--based residential treatment programs for offenders
under community supervision. The Division of Administration is
responsible for managing a budget of approximately $1 billion and
employing nearly 8,000 staff. Also within the Department are the
Office of Public Information, Office of Regulatory and Legal Affairs,
Special Investigations Unit and the Office of Policy and Planning.

Notes:
Actual payroll counts are reported for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 as of December and revised fiscal 2016 as of January. The
budget estimate for fiscal 2017 reflects the number of positions funded. Position ratios and per capita costs do not
include the Civilly Committed Sexual Offender Program.
Daily per capita rate calculations are based on 366 days for fiscal 2016 and 365 days for the other fiscal years.
Operational Capacity is the number of inmates that can be accommodated based on a facility’s available beds, budgeted staff,
programs and services. It does not include beds temporarily closed.
(a) Mid--State Correctional Facility was depopulated at the end of fiscal 2014 to undergo capital renovations.
(b) Participants are now calculated by using the official academic census day in order to be consistent with the Department of
Education’s census calculations and to avoid pupil count duplication.
(c) Decrease due to the internal reallocation of State Facilities Education Act (SFEA) positions from Detention and
Rehabilitation to Central Planning, Direction and Management.

adult parolees from State and county institutions and those
entering New Jersey from other states. It manages several
unique community programs designed to support the re--entry
and effective supervision of parolees and promotes pro--social
behavior for those re--entering our communities. Executive

parolees and offenders is monitored through the general and
specialized caseload officers.
05. State Parole Board. The Parole Board establishes parole
eligibility for young adult State inmates and monitors parole
eligibility for adult inmates of State and county facilities. The
Parole Board also monitors cases, conducts parole hearings,
approves community parole plans for the parolee, receives
and evaluates the input of victims of crime, complies with
court ordered procedures for parole revocation or parole
rescission, approves discharge from parole earlier than
maximum sentences, processes executive clemency petitions
and provides pre--parole information to prosecutors. The
Board exercises a quasi--judicial decision--making function to
determine when and under what conditions inmates are
released on parole. In addition, the Board hears parole
revocation cases to consider alleged parole violations.
99. Administration and Support Services. The Chairman and
supporting staff are responsible for conducting all Agency
programs by developing and maintaining an efficient
administration of programs, operations and services by
identifying, defining and delegating authority where appropriate; by interpreting and enforcing statutes and administrative
regulations of the Agency, the Civil Service Commission and
the Department of the Treasury; by seeking and providing

EDUCATION
OVERVIEW
Mission
The mission of the New Jersey Department of Education (DOE) is to
prepare all students, regardless of ZIP code, to graduate from high
school ready for college and career.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the DOE totals $13.395 billion, an
increase of $544.5 million or 4.2% over the fiscal 2016 adjusted
appropriation of $12.851 billion.
School Aid
State Aid to school districts for fiscal 2017 is recommended at $9.125
billion, an increase of $94.3 million over fiscal 2016. The proposed
increase in formula aid of $36.5 million will target the most
underfunded districts. In addition to existing aid, a new category of
aid--Professional Learning Community Aid--will provide $13.4
million to districts on a per pupil basis to support the development of
learning communities within and across districts. This funding will
help teachers and administrators analyze and use the data they
collect. With this new aid category, every district will receive an
increase in K--12 formula aid over the amount provided in fiscal
2016.
The increase in State Aid to school districts also supports additional
enrollments in the School Choice program in fiscal 2017 and a
recommended increase of $5 million in Extraordinary Special
Education Costs Aid to support high--cost special needs students.
Additionally, funding will be provided to support Charter School Aid
and Host District Support Aid to ensure that the fiscal 2017 base per
pupil funding provided to charter schools is no less than the amount
provided in fiscal 2016.
Direct State payments for education is recommended at $3.251
billion in fiscal 2017, an increase of $401.5 million over fiscal 2016.
Aid will support the costs of teachers’ pensions, post--retirement
medical benefits and Social Security payments. School construction
debt service on the bonds issued by the Economic Development
Authority (EDA) will increase in fiscal 2017.
Opportunity Scholarship Demonstration Program
The budget recommends $1 million in Opportunity Scholarship
grants for a pilot program to provide children in chronically failing
schools the chance to attend out--of--district public schools or
nonpublic schools, to allow every child a high quality education.

PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
Note: In fiscal year 2017, the school aid calculations
described below are modified or authorized by the provisions
of budgetary language.
01. General Formula Aid. The School Funding Reform Act
(SFRA) of 2008 established the basis for the aid that ensures
the provision of a thorough and efficient (T&E) system of
education.
a. Equalization Aid -- Aid is provided to a district whose
adequacy budget exceeds the local fair share tax effort. The
measure of fiscal capacity is determined by applying
statewide multipliers to the value of property and personal
income in the district. The local fair share represents the local
resources a district would have to appropriate in order to
spend at the level of its adequacy budget. A district may spend
above its adequacy budget level under a variety of
circumstances, but its Equalization Aid would not increase. A
district may appropriate less than its fair share without its
Equalization Aid being reduced. However, all districts are
required to appropriate a minimum local levy.
b. Adjustment Aid and Stabilized Aid -- Provisions in the
Act moderate the effects of the abrupt changes in the
entitlements from the prebudget year to the budget year. A
district whose entitlement growth exceeds the stabilization
growth limit of 10% or 20%, depending on whether the
district is spending above or below adequacy, experiences an
aid reduction to reach the limit; this reduction is reflected in
its aid allocations. In the 2008--2009 school year, a district that
experienced an increase less than 2% over the prebudget year
received Adjustment Aid to offset the amount of the loss or
the increase less than 2%. A district continues to receive
Adjustment Aid to ensure that the 2008--2009 State aid
funding level is maintained for 2009--2010 and 2010--2011. In
later years, districts with declining enrollments may
experience reductions in school funding.
c. Preschool Education Aid -- Aid is provided to districts
that received Early Childhood Program Aid (ECPA), Early
Launch to Learning Initiative aid (ELLI) or Preschool
Expansion Aid (PSEA) in 2007--2008. Districts that received
ECPA in 2007--2008 and did not also receive PSEA receive
Preschool Education Aid equal to the district’s 2013--2014 per
pupil allocation of Preschool Education Aid, multiplied by the
district’s projected preschool enrollment. ELLI districts will
receive Preschool Education Aid equal to the 2007--2008
ELLI award. Districts that received PSEA or Education
Opportunity Aid in 2007--2008 or were approved expansion
districts in 2008--2009 will receive Preschool Education Aid
calculated under the SFRA formula.
d. Per Pupil Growth Aid -- Provides aid to districts
calculated at a rate of $10 per pupil multiplied by the district’s
2014--2015 projected enrollment.
e. PARCC Readiness -- Provides aid to districts to procure
the technology necessary to offer the online Partnership for
Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
assessments.
D--85
f. Professional Learning Community Aid -- Provides aid to
districts to support the development of learning communities
within and across districts, in order to help teachers and
administrators analyze and use the data they collect.
g. School Choice Aid -- Aid is provided as the local fair
share per pupil amount for each choice student in an approved
School Choice district. For the purposes of calculating other
forms of State Aid, choice students are included in the School
Choice district’s resident enrollment.
h. Security Aid -- Aid is provided as a base amount for
every student plus an additional allocation that varies based
on the district’s concentration of at--risk designated students.
i. Supplemental Enrollment Growth Aid -- Provides aid to
districts that experienced enrollment growth greater than 13%
from October 2008 to October 2011.
j. Under Adequacy Aid -- Provides up to $500,000 to
regular districts that spent more than 10% below their
adequacy budget in fiscal 2014.
02. Nonpublic School Aid. Various types of assistance are
available to Boards of Education in public school districts in
New Jersey to reimburse such districts for expenses they are
required to incur on behalf of students who are enrolled in
grades K--12 in a nonpublic school within the district, which
complies with compulsory school attendance requirements
and with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act
of 1964. The following aid programs are included:
a. Nonpublic Textbook Aid -- Supports the purchase and
lending of textbooks upon individual request (N.J.S.A.
18A:58--37.1 et seq.). State aid is paid in an amount equal to
the state average budgeted textbook expense per public school
pupil for the prebudget year for all students enrolled in grades
K--12 in a nonpublic school on the last school day prior to
October 16 of the prebudget year.
b. Nonpublic Auxiliary Services Aid -- Aid for compensatory education, English as a second language and home
instruction (N.J.S.A.18A:46A--1 et seq.) is provided upon
consent of the parent or guardian. State aid is paid for
providing services to nonpublic pupils equivalent to the
services provided to pupils enrolled in the public schools.
c. Nonpublic Handicapped Aid -- Provides identification,
examination, classification, supplemental and speech correction services (N.J.S.A.18A:46--19.1 et seq.) for each student
who is enrolled full--time. State aid is paid to each school
district in an amount sufficient to provide examination,
classification, supplemental and speech correction services to
nonpublic pupils.
d. Nonpublic Auxiliary/Handicapped Transportation Aid -Provides for transporting nonpublic pupils to public schools
or neutral sites, for auxiliary/handicapped services that cannot
be provided constitutionally in sectarian schools.
e. Nonpublic Nursing Services Aid -- Provides funds for
Boards of Education to provide basic nursing services for
nonpublic school pupils who are enrolled full--time in
nonpublic
schools
within
the
school
district
(N.J.S.A.18A:40--23).
f. Nonpublic Technology Initiative -- Provides funds for
Boards of Education to provide technology to nonpublic
school students. The goal of the nonpublic technology
initiative program is to provide nonpublic school pupils with
computers, educational software, distance learning equipment
and other technologies that can improve their education by
meeting their specific educational needs and to give nonpublic
EDUCATION
school teachers the skills, resources and incentives to use
educational technologies effectively to improve teaching and
learning in the classroom.
local district personnel to administer transportation services
according to statute and code. Transportation Aid is provided
to local school districts for students who are required to be
transported according to N.J.S.A.18A:39--1 et seq. and
N.J.S.A.18A:46--23 as amended, based on the efficient costs
of transporting pupils. The costs are based on per pupil
allocations for students with and without special transportation needs and adjusted for the average distance pupils reside
from school and an efficiency incentive factor.
03. Miscellaneous Grants--In--Aid. The following programs are
included:
a. Charter School Aid -- Provides direct State aid to charter
schools for first year charter school students who attended
nonpublic schools prior to enrolling in the charter school.
Charter School Aid is also provided to ensure that charter
schools with enrollments greater than 2007--2008 receive no
less aid than the amount they received in 2007--2008, on
either a total or per pupil basis. Districts with declining
enrollments will receive no less than they received in
2007--2008, on a per pupil basis.
b. Payments for Institutionalized Children--Unknown District of Residence -- Provides for the payment of State aid for
educational services to students in grades K--12 who are
homeless or a resident in an institution of the Department of
Corrections, the Department of Human Services, the
Department of Children and Families or the Juvenile Justice
Commission, and for whom a local school district of residence
has not been identified.
07. Special Education. The School Funding Reform Act of 2008
supports the additional costs incurred by districts in providing
individualized educational programs to students with
disabilities in public and private school settings. The Act
funds two--thirds of the special education cost through the
Equalization Aid formula and one--third through Special
Education Categorical Aid. Pupils are aided via a census
method, which applies the state average excess cost for
special education and the state average classification rate to
district enrollments. Pupils classified solely for speech--language services are also aided based on the census method,
which applies the excess cost for speech and the state average
speech classification rate to district enrollments. Additional
support is provided for high cost students through
Extraordinary Special Education Costs Aid.
38. Facilities Planning and School Building Aid. Approves
architectural review, master plans and site acquisitions;
evaluates facilities for educational adequacy, health and
safety; and periodically surveys public school buildings.
Reviews and approves long--range facilities plans, as well as
applications for school facilities projects. Project review
includes the determination of consistency with the district’s
long--range plan and compliance with facilities efficiency
standards and area allowances per FTE student derived from
those standards. Based on that review, the preliminary eligible
costs for State financing are calculated. School Building Aid
provides State support for debt service on projects approved
prior to the enactment of the Educational Facilities
Construction and Financing Act of 2000 (EFCFA). The
School Construction and Renovation Fund provides for State
debt service for school construction projects approved under
the provisions of EFCFA. School Construction Debt Service
Aid provides aid for local debt for EFCFA projects.
42. School Finance. Responsible for the calculation and
distribution of Education State aid in accordance with the
applicable statutes; provides leadership in the development of
uniform school district accounting and administrative
practices; provides support for research and consulting
services for start--up requirements needed for reorganization
under N.J.S.A. 18A:7A--1 et seq., including an analysis of
school business practices, dissemination of modern budgeting
materials and further design of reporting requirements.
Regional Schools for the Disabled are authorized by the State
Facilities for the Handicapped Bond Fund (Chapter 149, Laws
of 1973). Funds were used for the construction of 11 regional
schools to provide educational services to children with
severe disabilities. The first schools opened in the fall of
1981, and by September 1984 all schools were serving
children. All of the ten currently operating schools are
managed by local school districts, under contract, and are
funded entirely by receipts from the sending school districts.
36. Student Transportation. Monitors, analyzes and evaluates
local districts’ transportation systems and records in order to
increase the safety, cost--effectiveness and accountability of
transportation operations. Develops safety education programs and provides technical assistance to local boards of
education to promote safety and to efficiently administer
transportation services. The Department trains county and

30. EDUCATIONAL, CULTURAL, AND INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT
32. OPERATION AND SUPPORT OF EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
OBJECTIVES
1. To provide preschool, elementary, middle and comprehensive
high school programs for deaf and multiply--disabled students
whose primary disability is deafness.
2. To provide regional facilities for the education of disabled
students.
3. To implement the Katzenbach Center on Deafness to provide
services to deaf and hard--of--hearing persons of all ages in
order to enhance their quality of life and to assist them in
maximizing their potential.
PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
12. Marie H. Katzenbach School for the Deaf. The Marie H.
Katzenbach School for the Deaf provides academic, career
and technical educational services to deaf and multiply--disabled deaf children from preschool through twelfth grade.
Residential services will be provided to approximately 30% of
the student population. Special programs to broaden the
population served by the school include programs for
preschool ages (3--5) and emotionally disturbed. The school’s
operating costs are supported by State appropriation and
tuition.
13. Behavioral Support Program. The Behavioral Support
Program (BSP), established in 1994, will continue with a
projected enrollment of three pupils. The BSP responds to the
needs of deaf and hard--of--hearing students with behavioral
difficulties. This program provides educational services that
address the social, cultural, behavioral and psychological
needs of students in elementary through high school who also
have emotional disturbances. The goal of the program is to
teach students how to cope with their emotional needs so they
can successfully return to the regular academic or career and
technical education classes. Tuition paid by the districts that
send these children to the Katzenbach School will support the
costs of the program.

30. EDUCATIONAL, CULTURAL, AND INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT
33. SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING PROGRAMS
OBJECTIVES
1. To provide quality educational programs that further develop
the academic and technical skills of career and technical
education students through high standards.
2. To provide quality programs to New Jersey students to assist
them in clarifying career goals, exploring career possibilities,
experiencing career applications of academic knowledge and

5. To provide professional development and technical assistance
to career and technical educators.
PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
20. General Vocational Education. To assist the State in
attaining the objectives stated above in providing individuals
with the knowledge and skills to keep the U.S. competitive,
the federal government provides funds to conduct State career
and technical education administrative activities. To be
eligible for these funds under the Carl D. Perkins Career and
Technical Education Act, the State must match this federal
grant award on a dollar for dollar basis (P.L. 109--270).
D--94
EDUCATION
In order for the State to qualify to receive federal grant money
under the Perkins Act, New Jersey is required to provide a
maintenance of effort equal to, or greater than, the amount of
effort in the prior fiscal year. Failure to provide such
maintenance of effort disqualifies a state from receipt of
Perkins money.
These combined funds allow the State to maintain, in
cooperation with business, industry and labor, quality career
and technical education programs, by providing consultation,
technical assistance and regulatory services to public and
private educational agencies.
The Department also develops new and innovative career and
technical education programs; provides in--service training for
career and technical education teachers; conducts program
evaluations; provides administrative services for the Office of
Career Readiness Programs; maintains liaison with agencies
and personnel on the local, State, and federal levels; and
develops the annual revisions of the State Plan for Career and
Technical Education. These activities maximize educational
opportunities and minimize costly duplication of effort.
General Vocational Education -- Aid (N.J.S.A.18A:58--34 et
seq.) is paid on the following criteria: (a) the State may grant
up to 100% of approved expenditures for new and innovative
projects, and (b) expenditures for the improvement of career
and technical education programs conducted under Public
Law 101--392, subject to federal mandates requiring that
special populations be given full opportunity to participate in
career and technical education programs.

39. Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Assistance. The State
provides the employer’s share to the Teachers’ Pension and
Annuity Fund (TPAF) (N.J.S.A.18A:66--33) based on
amounts actuarially determined by using experience of the
preceding year as certified to the Governor by the Fund’s
Board of Trustees. All public school teachers are required to
contribute to the Fund, except for optional participation of
certain persons based on age, veteran status or teacher status
prior to specified dates.
40. Learning Supports and Specialized Services. Provides
statewide leadership and coordinates oversight of the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the
McKinney--Vento Homeless Assistance Act, Title I, Special
Education, Bilingual Education, Migrant, Neglected and
Delinquent, and Holocaust Genocide Education, as well as
Student Support Services. Assists school districts in
promoting positive student development and behavior.
Specifically, the Department develops and implements policy
and programs, and collects data, as appropriate, in the
following areas: educational stability, violence prevention,
substance abuse prevention and education, student conduct,
school safety, school climate, comprehensive health education, school health services, HIV/AIDS education, extended
learning opportunities, bilingual education, equal education
opportunities, special education, nonpublic school services,
school and district accountability, services to academically
at--risk Title I students and their teachers; and services to
homeless, migrant, and neglected and delinquent students.
Holocaust and Genocide Education was mandated by the
State Legislature in 1994. The New Jersey Commission on
Holocaust Education has as its central mission the study,
development, recommendation and dissemination of curricular materials to local school districts on a wide range of
genocides, with the goal of eradicating ethnic and racial
intolerance and fostering tolerance for cultural diversity. The
Commission coordinates activities to assist districts in
implementing the mandate, including the dissemination of
instructional materials, the provision of staff training and the
coordination of Holocaust Genocide Education Centers.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
OVERVIEW
Mission
The mission of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)
is to protect New Jersey’s land, air, waters and the public health and
to preserve and manage New Jersey’s natural and historic resources.
The DEP will protect and manage fish and wildlife to maximize their
long--term biological, recreational and economic values; preserve
open space to enhance New Jersey’s natural environment and
historic, scenic and recreational resources; administer shore
protection, dam safety and flood control projects throughout the
state; and assist the residents of New Jersey in identifying,
preserving, protecting and sustaining our historic and archaeological
resources.
The DEP has six major divisions: Natural and Historic Resources,
Land Use Management, Water Resource Management, Air Quality,
Energy and Sustainability, Site Remediation and Waste Management, and Compliance and Enforcement. The DEP also includes
three in--but--not--of agencies that receive State appropriations: the
Palisades Interstate Park Commission, the Highlands Water
Protection and Planning Council, and the Pinelands Commission.
The DEP will balance environmental stewardship, economic growth
and the needs of environmentally overburdened communities in
order to build New Jersey’s economy in a responsible and sustainable
manner.
Goals
The DEP will continue to advance its mission through the effective
and balanced implementation and enforcement of State and federal
environmental laws and through its 24/7 emergency response
activities. The DEP will continue to serve as a responsible steward of
New Jersey’s rich and diverse natural, historic, cultural and
recreational resources through its maintenance and operation of 39
parks, 3 recreation areas, 11 forests, 2 marinas and more than 50
historic sites. The DEP will manage more than 765,000 acres of
parkland and wildlife areas for the benefit of present and future
generations.
The DEP will continue to assist the victims of Super Storm Sandy and
restore the state’s drinking and wastewater facilities that were
damaged by the storm. The DEP will also continue its efforts to make
our communities more resilient to future storms and floods and to
advance the State’s comprehensive Shore Protection Plan which will
protect life and property from the effects of future storms.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the DEP, excluding Debt Service,
totals $343.4 million, a decrease of $7.2 million or 2.1% under the
fiscal 2016 adjusted appropriation of $350.6 million.

PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
11. Forest Resource Management. State Forestry Services
works with public and private landowners to maintain and
establish healthy forests statewide. Despite being the most
densely populated state, forests cover 42% of New Jersey;
62% of all New Jersey forested land is privately owned. The
state’s forests contribute tangible and intangible benefits to
New Jersey, including cleaner air and water, recreation and
the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of New Jersey’s natural
environment. The State Forest Fire Service prevents and
suppresses wildfires to protect both the forest resources as
well as residents living near the forest. State Forestry
Services provides technical support and educational materials
to municipalities, landowners and homeowners through
private, non--industrial lands stewardship, insect and disease
control, and urban and community forestry resource
programs. The agency also provides educational programs,
grows seedlings for reforestation, and identifies and protects
threatened and endangered plants and habitats.
12. Parks Management. Operates, maintains and provides
stewardship for 42 individual State parks, forests and
recreation areas, totaling over 445,000 acres; 5 marinas, 3 of
which are operated under lease agreements with private firms;
4 public golf courses, operated under management agreements
with private firms; 57 State historic sites and districts, some of
which are located within the 42 State Park areas, 20 of which
are staffed for public interpretive programs and other
recreational, natural and interpretive facilities in a clean, safe
and non--discriminatory manner; staffs facilities with
maintenance, administrative, park police and seasonal
personnel to provide assistance, information, education and
interpretive and protective services to the public; manages
properties to ensure the preservation of natural and historic
resources while maintaining high quality recreational
opportunities; plans for the development and improvement of
new facilities and reviews and approves all new construction;
provides literature regarding recreational facilities and natural
area and historic preservation; and operates and maintains
State marinas in a clean, safe and non--discriminatory manner
for all boat owners and visitors.
13. Hunters’ and Anglers’ License Fund. Manages the wildlife
resources of the state through programs of research,
regulation, habitat development, land acquisition, law
enforcement and public education. Trout and other species of
fish and pheasants are reared at State hatcheries and game
farm and released throughout the state; public lands are
acquired and maintained for use as wildlife management
areas. Regulations regarding hunting and fishing seasons and
fish and wildlife possession are developed, and licenses,
stamps and permits are sold to provide a source of revenue to
manage the state’s wildlife resources. Farmers and residents
D--113
are assisted with wildlife damage control issues through direct
response to matters of public safety or by issuing special
permits to allow citizens to mitigate damage.
14. Shellfish and Marine Fisheries Management. Manages the
marine shellfish and finfish resources of the state through
research, monitoring, habitat protection, licensing, regulatory
programs and law enforcement. Clam and oyster grounds are
leased to commercial shellfishermen for aquaculture activities. Programs (relay and depuration) also provide for the safe
utilization of shellfish from marginally polluted areas. Marine
fisheries programs support the effective management of
numerous migratory species on a coastwide basis. An
artificial reef program constructs fisheries habitat in ocean
areas to enhance productivity, thus providing additional
fishing and diving opportunities.
20. Wildlife Management. Conducts wildlife research and
monitors wildlife populations of the state’s non--game and
endangered wildlife species. Plans and executes programs to
restore and recover imperiled wildlife species of greatest
conservation need. Provides information to the public to
assist with the management of human--wildlife conflict
situations. Additional responsibilities include permit review
for wildlife possession, bird banding, scientific collection and
public information.
21. Natural Resources Engineering. The Office of Engineering
and Construction provides financial and technical assistance
to local governments for the construction of groins, jetties,
bulkheads, sea walls and beach replenishment under the shore
protection program. Performs dam safety inspections and dam
construction and reconstruction permit reviews. Manages the
dam safety and dam loan program to achieve compliance with
safe dam regulations. Provides financial and technical
assistance to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and local
governments for flood control projects, including flood walls,
levees and property buy--outs. Operates and maintains the
bayshore floodgate and Pompton Lake Dam floodgate.
Dredges and marks 200 miles of navigation channels in tidal
inland waterways and large State--controlled lakes for boating
safety.
24. Palisades Interstate Park Commission. Operates and
maintains existing parks and historic sites in a clean, safe and
non--discriminatory manner for all visitors; plans for the
improvement and development of new facilities; maintains
highways, bridges, landscaped areas, signs and traffic lines to
ensure the safety of the motoring public. Enforces traffic laws
on the Palisades Parkway and all other roads within the
Commission’s boundaries; polices Commission lands to
ensure that park facilities are utilized in accordance with laws,
statutes and Commission regulations; maintains a police court
with the powers and jurisdiction of a municipal court with
respect to crimes, disorderly conduct, and violations of the
motor vehicle and traffic or other laws of the State or of any of
the rules and regulations of the Commission.
29. Environmental Management and Preservation -- CBT
Dedication. Since 1996, 4% of the revenue annually derived
from the tax imposed by the Corporation Business Tax Act
(P.L.1945, c.162) has been dedicated to the Department. A
portion of the dedication provides funding for the
preservation, including acquisition, development and stewardship, of lands for recreation and conservation purposes.

40. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
44. SITE REMEDIATION AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
OBJECTIVES
1. To implement the requirements of the Site Remediation
Reform Act, which will result in almost all non--publicly
funded site remediation projects being performed by Licensed
Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP) with Site Remediation
and Waste Management Program inspections and reviews of
the work performed. Participation in the LSRP program has
been mandatory since May 2012.
2. To remediate sites contaminated by hazardous substances and
pollutants to protect public health and safety and the
environment, and to restore contaminated areas of the state for
beneficial use.
3. To address known discharge sites, regulated underground
storage tank sites, industrial establishments as defined by the
Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA), non--operating landfills
with development potential, Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA) facilities, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation & Liability Act of 1980
(CERCLA) sites, and federal facilities for cleanup and closure
in accordance with applicable regulations.
4. Determine the imminent risk of sites to public health and
safety and the environment consistent with legislated
mandates and, in those cases when the responsible party is
either unknown or unable to perform the cleanup, utilize
public funds to remediate the most contaminated sites
representing the greatest risk to public health and safety and
the environment first.
5. To coordinate responses and take immediate action when
discharges of hazardous substances and pollutants endanger
public health and safety and the environment, especially water
supplies and vapor intrusion.
6. To respond to emergency discharges of hazardous substances
and pollutants throughout the state and enable the public to
report environmental emergencies to the Department’s
communication center via toll--free access.
7. To maximize the use of private--party funds by requiring
responsible parties to either conduct remedial work through
implementation of the LSRP program or reimburse the
Department for performing remedial work.
8. To develop and implement clear, consistent and predictable
regulations for site remediation for use by the LSRPs, the
regulated community and the Department, and ensure that
technically and scientifically justified cleanup objectives are
met.
9. To implement a statewide solid waste planning process that
emphasizes source reduction, recycling and market development activities. To conduct comprehensive reviews of permit
applications for solid waste, hazardous waste, recycling and
composting facilities, and landfill closures. To implement the
Electronic Management Waste Act.
10. To compensate persons affected by hazardous substance
discharges through: (a) the Spill Compensation Fund
environmental claims program, (b) the Sanitary Landfill
Contingency Fund claims program, and (c) loans and grants,
administered in conjunction with the New Jersey Economic
Development Authority, from the Hazardous Discharge Site
Remediation Fund and Underground Storage Tank Fund.
PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
19. Publicly--Funded Site Remediation and Response. Conducts a program to remediate sites contaminated by hazardous
substances where a responsible party cannot be identified or is
unable or unwilling to voluntarily participate. Provides an
around--the--clock response program for chemical, biological,
radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) emergencies.
Also operates an around--the--clock communication center,
which is the point of initial notification for events and the key
point of contact/communication for many State agencies.
These activities are supported by federal (Superfund) funds
and state funds (such as CBT). These funds are subject to
direct billing reimbursements and cost recovery.
23. Solid and Hazardous Waste Management. Provides
leadership, planning, education, and technical assistance to
the state’s citizens, businesses and local government to help
them manage their waste responsibly. Provides grants to
municipalities and counties in accordance with the Recycling
Enhancement Act.
Regulates the generation, storage,
collection, transportation, processing, treatment and disposal
of solid and hazardous wastes and closure of facilities.
Regulations and standards are implemented and monitored
through on--site construction inspections, design reviews, data
collection and permit issuance. Administers the federal
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA).
Develops and implements programs, such as the Electronic
Waste Recycling program, to attain statewide recycling goals
and to reduce the quantities of waste generated. Monitors the
solid waste collection industry to promote effective
competition and to prohibit anti--competitive practices.
Regulates and oversees mergers, acquisitions and long--term
financing arrangements of the solid waste utility industry. The
landfill unit promotes the reuse of non--operating landfills,
providing oversight of landfill remediation, closure and
redevelopment through the melding and implementation of
solid waste regulations and technical requirements for site
remediation.
27. Remediation Management. Conducts a statewide program
to review the remediation of sites by private parties under the
State’s Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP)
cleanup program to ensure that appropriate standards and
technical requirements are met. The Site Remediation Reform
Act, State Spill Compensation and Control Act, Industrial Site
Recovery Act, Underground Storage of Hazardous Substances
Act, Water Pollution Control Act, and Brownfield and
D--124
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Contaminated Site Remediation Act authorize the Department
to oversee these projects. Provides management assistance,
oversight and coordination of remedial activities at National
Priorities List Site Cleanups where the projects are led by the
federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department
of Defense or Department of Energy. Under the Performance
Partnership Agreement with the EPA, the Department
coordinates with the EPA and conducts oversight of
closure/post--closure activities and conducts remediation
oversight at those sites designated under the Government
Performance and Result Act under the federal RCRA. Many
of the above activities have been be modified to meet the
criteria of the Site Remediation Reform Act, which establishes
a Licensed Site Remediation Professional Program, with the
Department’s role shifting to include inspection, review and
field review responsibility coupled with less direct case
management as mandated under the Site Remediation Reform
Act. The program also conducts environmental reviews of
proposed child care/educational facilities for licensing
purposes as required under N.J.S.A. 52:27D--130.4 and
conducts periodic environmental inspections of those facilities
in the state. Remediates sites contaminated by hazardous
substances where a responsible party cannot be identified or is
unable or unwilling to perform the necessary remediation
using public funds on a priority basis. The support programs
perform all necessary scientific assistance for successful
implementation of the cleanup program, as well as tracking
and case processing, enforcement, information system
development and maintenance, contracting, fund management, billing, cost recovery and financial support.
29. Environmental Management and Preservation -- CBT
Dedication. Since 1996, 4% of the revenue annually derived
from the tax imposed by the Corporation Business Tax Act
(P.L.1945, c.162) has been dedicated to the Department. A
portion of this dedication provides funding for underground
storage tank programs, hazardous substance discharge
remediation programs including redevelopment of brownfields, and non--administrative costs for hazardous substance
discharge cleanups performed by the State.

OBJECTIVES
1. To protect public health and improve the environment by
ensuring compliance with the State’s rules and regulations
concerning coastal and land use, air pollution, water
resources, solid and hazardous waste, and pesticides.
2. To undertake innovative but consistent and predictable
enforcement policies, protocols and actions, employing a
holistic perspective to ensure high compliance, environmentally beneficial behaviors and outcomes leading to sustainability.
3. To employ strong enforcement as well as compliance
assistance and incentives, responding appropriately and with
common sense to the great variety of factors affecting the
environment.
4. To augment the Department’s compliance and enforcement
related activities by leveraging our limited resources through
partnerships, especially through County Environmental
Health Act grant agreements with local health agencies and
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
5. To improve the quality of the state’s beaches through
cooperation with the Department of Corrections, the
Department of Health and the United States Army Corps of
Engineers in programs that reduce floatable debris and
monitor ocean water quality.
6. To inspect, monitor and report on the quality of surface and
groundwater discharges in the state.
7. To protect the public and the environment from any hazards
resulting from the production, use, sale, storage or other
activities related to pesticides.
8. To perform regular comprehensive underground storage tank
inspections in order to protect ground water resources from
gasoline and other contamination by reducing the number of
leaking tanks.
PROGRAM CLASSIFICATIONS
02. Air Pollution Control. Conducts investigations to determine
compliance with the Air Pollution Control Act at regulated
facilities. Conducts investigations based on citizen complaints
of air pollution. Issues enforcement documents and tracks,
records and reports on associated administrative activities to
ensure compliance. Develops enforcement cases, processes
violations, assesses penalties and negotiates compliance
schedules for these programs.
04. Pesticide Control. Regulates the manufacture, distribution,
storage, sale, possession and use of pesticides. Conducts
complaint investigations and routine inspections. Compliance
assistance and pollution prevention activities are performed
through training and outreach. Promotes reducing the use of
pesticides through practical pest control techniques known as
“Integrated Pest Management” (IPM). Enforces requirements
for IPM in public, private and charter schools in New Jersey.
Enforces farm worker pesticide safety requirements at
agricultural establishments. All pesticide products sold in the
D--135
state are registered with this program. Pesticide applicators
and dealers are certified and licensed, and permits are issued
for mosquito/fly control and aquatic pesticide use. Monitoring
and evaluation of pesticide hazards and laboratory analysis of
pesticide samples are also conducted.
08. Water Pollution Control. Responsible for providing compliance assistance, conducting monitoring and investigations,
and issuing enforcement actions in support of the water
programs. A particular focus is placed on inspections of
wastewater dischargers and community drinking water supply
facilities; prevention and correction of non--compliance
conditions through a multifaceted compliance assistance
program, including outreach, education and a Discharge
Monitoring Report guidance manual; issuance of administrative and judicial enforcement actions for chronic or significant
violations; and investigation of complaints relating to water
resources. Monitors compliance with all permits issued under
the New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(NJPDES) for surface water, ground water and indirect
discharges to Publicly Owned Treatment Works. Formal
enforcement actions are also issued for violations in the Water
Allocation Program and against State--certified laboratories
that fail to comply with the laboratory certification program
requirements.
15. Land Use Regulation. Conducts investigations and site
inspections required for compliance with State regulations and
permits issued pursuant to the Highlands Water Protection and
Planning Act, Freshwater Wetlands Protection Act, the Flood
Hazard Area Control Act, the Coastal Area Facility Review
Act, the Wetlands Act of 1970, the Dam Safety Act and the
Waterfront Development and Riparian Lands statutes.
Responding to reports of alleged violations of the above
statutes, the program advises individuals how to achieve
and/or maintain compliance.
23. Solid and Hazardous Waste Management. Assures
compliance with federal Resource Conservation and Recovery
Act (RCRA) regulations, the New Jersey Solid Waste
Management Act and the Solid Waste Utility Control Act.
Manages and conducts compliance and enforcement activities
to ensure that solid waste, hazardous waste, regulated medical
waste and used oil are collected, stored, transported, recycled
and disposed of in an environmentally acceptable manner.
Monitors the solid waste industry to ensure only financially
sound companies and individuals of good repute are engaged
in waste transport and disposal activities and that waste
customers are treated fairly by the industry. Activities include
such compliance assistance functions as environmental audits,
grace periods and supplemental environmental projects as
well as conventional inspections, investigations, transporter
and regulated medical waste generator licensing, and, when
necessary, formal enforcement actions. Also performs regular
comprehensive underground storage tank inspections in order
to protect ground water resources from gasoline and other
contamination.

NOTES
HEALTH
OVERVIEW
Mission
The mission of the Department of Health is to improve health through
leadership and innovation. The Department has two major branches:
Public Health Services, which represents traditional public health
programs, and Health Systems, where the emphasis is on improving
the quality of health care through expanded oversight efforts, such as
the licensure and inspection of various health care facilities.
intensive care units, specialty care transport units and air medical
units.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Department of Health totals
$532.3 million, an increase of $116.2 million or 27.9% over the fiscal
2016 adjusted appropriation of $416.1 million.
Health Services
The fiscal 2017 budget continues funding for the Early Childhood
Intervention program. Funding of $97.3 million is recommended to
address the needs of children with developmental disabilities under
three years of age. Eligibility standards and co--payment
requirements will remain unchanged.
Goals
The Department seeks to:
Optimize access to the highest quality health care and public health
services for the people of New Jersey.
Partner with health care providers to promote wellness and
activities related to the prevention of illness and the management of
chronic diseases.
The AIDS Drug Distribution Program (ADDP) provides life--supporting and life--sustaining medications for individuals with HIV
disease who have no other source of payment for these drugs. The
program serves as a safety net for those who are ineligible for other
public programs, including NJ FamilyCare, Medicare, Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD), and Senior Gold.
Adherence to pharmaceutical treatment for HIV disease greatly
reduces the risk of transmission.
Strengthen New Jersey’s health care infrastructure by adopting
best practices, inspecting and monitoring health care facilities and
services, improving the delivery system, and supporting our safety
net institutions as well as creating a comprehensive communications
system that links health care providers and institutions statewide,
forming a coordinated disease surveillance and response network,
and providing quality and responsive comprehensive public health
and environmental laboratory diagnostic testing services.
The New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED)
program provides comprehensive breast, cervical, colorectal and
prostate cancer screening and diagnostic services to uninsured/underinsured residents of New Jersey who meet income guidelines with
special emphasis on the recruitment and screening of high--risk
populations including racial and ethnic minorities. Total State and
federal funding for the NJCEED program is $12 million.
Prevent and control communicable and chronic diseases, foster and
support maternal and child health services including increased access
to prenatal care services and HIV and AIDS related services.
Implement scientific, evidence--based primary and secondary
prevention programs designed to decrease mortality and morbidity
from health conditions such as heart disease, cancer, obesity and
stroke, and to identify and mitigate newborn metabolic deficiencies.
The fiscal 2017 budget continues funding for Federally Qualified
Health Centers (FQHC). There are now 109 licensed sites throughout
the state. Total recommended funding for uninsured FQHC visits is
$28 million.
Eliminate disparities in health care access, treatment and clinical
outcomes between racial, ethnic and socioeconomic populations, in
part through cultural competency, education and partnering with
minority--oriented health organizations.
Health Planning and Evaluation
The Office of Health Care Financing contains Charity Care, Graduate
Medical Education and the Delivery System Reform Incentive
Payment Programs. This office ensures the management of funds
through an integrated and comprehensive hospital funding policy. In
total, the Department will oversee hospital funding of $706.6 million
in State and federal resources.
Provide grants for community--based organizations to conduct
outreach, education, screening, referrals and follow--up focusing on
special child and early intervention services, diabetes, asthma and
chronic disease self--management.
Prepare New Jersey to rapidly detect, identify and respond to
health--related aspects of biological, chemical, radiological, nuclear,
explosive and incendiary acts of terrorism as well as natural disasters
and disease outbreaks.
The fiscal 2017 budget recommends a Charity Care allocation of
$352 million. The Charity Care distribution formula is transparent to
the hospital industry and creates incentives for hospitals by
recognizing fluctuations in documented Charity Care.
Work to strengthen New Jersey’s local public health system and
improve the performance and practice of local health departments
through the Department’s Office of Public Health.
The Divisions of Health Care Facility Survey and Field Operations
and Certificate of Need and Licensing conduct programs for on--site
inspections, compliance and enforcement, certificate of need review,
and licensing of over 2,000 health care facilities. Additionally, the
programs investigate complaints from consumers and other
governmental agencies regarding health care facilities.
Maintain the certification of more than 26,000 Emergency Medical
Technicians and 1,700 paramedics as well as provide licensure of
more than 4,500 mobility assistance vehicles, ambulances, mobile

Column E data according to the DOH advance submission request dated February 5, 2015, source data from CY 2013 shall be used
for hospital--specific gross revenue for charity care patients and for hospital total gross revenue for all patients as defined by Form E4,
Line 1, Column E; (e) the hospital--specific reimbursed documented charity care shall be permitted to decline to 2%, rather than be
limited to no less than 43%; (f) for each eligible hospital, except those designated 96% by their hospital--specific reimbursed
documented charity care, a proportionate decrease shall be applied to its calculated subsidy based on its percentage of total subsidy
such that the total calculated subsidy for all hospitals shall equal $352,000,000; and (g) the resulting value will constitute each
eligible hospital’s SFY 2017 charity care subsidy allocation.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, any funds remaining as the result of a closure of a hospital eligible
to receive Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) funds shall be redistributed at the discretion of the Commissioner of Health.
Factors the commissioner will consider shall include, but not be limited to, maintenance of continued timely access to essential health
services for persons eligible to participate in charity care, and continued operation in the same or adjoining municipality as the closed
hospital of an acute care hospital, eligible to receive DSH funds, and serving substantially the same eligible population. Notice of
such redistribution shall be provided to the Joint Budget Oversight Committee within five business days of each redistribution.
The amounts hereinabove appropriated for Health Care Subsidy Fund Payments are conditioned upon the following provision: the
Department of Health shall review, examine and/or audit any and all financial information maintained by an acute care hospital to
ensure appropriate use of public funds.
The amounts hereinabove appropriated for charity care or other funding to a health care facility is conditioned upon the following
requirement: such health care facility shall participate in planning meetings supervised by the Department of Health for the planning
of the provision of hospital, medical, or health programs and services, and shall, to the extent permitted by State and federal law,
share patient--level data as needed to facilitate such purposes.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amounts hereinabove appropriated from the Health Care
Subsidy Fund for charity care payments are subject to the following condition: In a manner determined by the Commissioner of
Health and subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting, eligible hospitals shall receive (1) their
charity care subsidy payments beginning in July 2016, and (2) their January 2017 payments in December 2016.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, and except as otherwise provided and subject to such
modifications as may be required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in order to achieve any required federal
approval and full Federal Financial Participation, the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Graduate Medical Education (GME) are
conditioned upon the following: The subsidy payment shall be split into a Direct Medical Education (DME) allocation, which is
calculated by multiplying the total subsidy amount by the ratio of 2014 total median Medicaid managed care DME costs--to--2014
total median Medicaid managed care GME costs; and an Indirect Medical Education (IME) allocation, which is calculated by
multiplying the total subsidy amount by the ratio of 2014 total Medicaid managed care IME costs--to--total 2014 Medicaid managed
care GME costs. Each hospital’s percentage of total 2014 Medicaid managed care DME costs shall be multiplied by the DME
allocation to calculate its DME payment. Each hospital’s percentage of total 2014 Medicaid managed care IME costs shall be
multiplied by the IME allocation to calculate its IME payment. The sum of a hospital’s DME and IME payments equal its subsidy
payment. The total amount of these payments shall not exceed $188,000,000 and shall be paid in twelve monthly payments. In the
event that a hospital reported less than twelve months of 2014 Medicaid costs, the number of reported months of data regarding days,
costs, or payments shall be annualized. In the event the hospital completed a merger, acquisition, or business combination resulting in
two cost reports filed during the calendar year, the two cost reports will be combined into one cost report for the calendar year. In the
event that a hospital did not report its Medicaid managed care days on the cost report utilized in this calculation, the Department of
Health (DOH) shall ascertain Medicaid Managed Care encounter days for Medicaid and NJ FamilyCare clients as reported by
insurers to the State for the following reporting period: services dates between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014; payment
dates between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015; and a run--date not later than January 31, 2016. Medicaid managed care
DME cost is defined as the approved intern and residency program costs using the 2014 Medicaid cost report total residency costs,
reported on Worksheet B Pt I Column 21 line 21 plus Worksheet B Pt I Column 22 Line 22 divided by 2014 resident full time
equivalent employees [FTE], reported on Worksheet S--3 Part 1 Column 9 line 14 to develop an average cost per FTE for each
hospital used to calculate the overall median cost per FTE. The median cost per FTE is multiplied by the 2014 resident FTEs reported
on Worksheet S--3 Part 1 Column 9 line 14 to develop approved total residency program costs. The approved residency costs are
multiplied by the quotient of Medicaid managed care days, reported on Worksheet S--3 Column 7 Line 2, divided by the quantity of
total days, on Worksheet S--3 Column 8 Line 14, less nursery days, on Worksheet S--3 Column 8 Line 13. Medicaid managed care
IME cost is defined as the Medicare IME factor multiplied by Medicaid Managed Care encounter payments for Medicaid and NJ
FamilyCare clients as reported by insurers to the State for the following reporting period: services dates between January 1, 2014 and
D--155
HEALTH
December 31, 2014; payment dates between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015; and a run--date of not later than January 31,
2016. The IME factor is calculated using the Medicare IME formula as follows: 1.35 * [(1 + x) 0.405 -- 1], in which “x” is the quotient
of submitted IME resident full--time equivalencies reported on Worksheet S--3 Part 1 Column 9 line 14 divided by the quantity of total
available beds less nursery beds reported Worksheet S--3 col. 2 L14. In the event that a hospital believes that there are mathematical
errors in the calculations, or data not matching the actual source documents used to calculate the subsidy as defined above, hospitals
shall be permitted to file calculation appeals within 15 working days of receipt of the subsidy allocation letter. If upon review it is
determined by the DOH that the error has occurred and would constitute at least a five percent change in the hospital’s allocation
amount, a revised industry--wide allocation shall be issued. Each hospital receiving a GME allocation shall, on or before January 1st,
provide a report to the Commissioner of Health indicating the total number of physicians who completed their training during
calendar year 2015, and the number of those physicans who plan to practice medicine within the State of New Jersey.
There are appropriated such additional sums as are required to pay all amounts due from the State pursuant to any contract entered into
between the State Treasurer and the New Jersey Health Care Facilities Financing Authority pursuant to section 6 of P.L.2000, c.98
(C.26:2I--7.1) in connection with the Hospital Asset Transformation Program.
In addition to the amount hereinabove appropriated for Health Care Systems Analysis, an amount not to exceed $1,000,000 is appropriated
from amounts assessed and collected by the Department of Banking and Insurance pursuant to section 9 of P.L.2007, c.330
(C.17:1D--2), for the purpose of funding costs associated with the development and maintenance of the New Jersey Health
Information Network, subject to a plan prepared by the Department of Health and approved by the Director of the Division of Budget
and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Hospital Delivery
System Reform Incentive Payments Program of $166.6 million are conditioned upon the following: a hospital’s payment shall be
calculated and distributed as set forth in the final approved version of New Jersey’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments
(DSRIP) funding and mechanics protocol approved on March 27, 2014, by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in connection with the New Jersey Comprehensive Medicaid 1115 Waiver,
consistent with the Special Terms and Conditions of the approved Waiver, including but not limited to Section XIII, paragraphs 91
through 97 thereof as may be amended by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The amount hereinabove appropriated for the Hospital Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP) program is subject to the
following condition: the Department of Health shall promptly file with the Presiding Officers of the Legislature copies of any reports
or other determinations regarding DSRIP eligibility or plan performance, including but not limited to whether or not a hospital has
satisfied any eligibility benchmarks required for receipt of DSRIP funding, which are made by the State or received from CMS.

HEALTH
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
Notwithstanding the provisions of P.L.2005, c.237 or any other law or regulation to the contrary, $28,000,000 from the surcharge on each
general hospital and each specialty heart hospital is appropriated to fund federally qualified health centers. Any unexpended balance
at the end of the preceding fiscal year in the Health Care Subsidy Fund received through the hospital and other health care initiatives
account during the preceding fiscal year is appropriated for payments to federally qualified health centers.
Receipts from licenses, permits, fines, penalties, and fees collected by the Department of Health, in excess of those anticipated, are
appropriated, subject to a plan prepared by the department and approved by the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of section 7 of P.L.1992, c.160 (C.26:2H--18.57) or any law or regulation to the contrary, the first
$1,200,000 in per adjusted admission charge assessment revenues, attributable to $10 per adjusted admission charge assessments
made by the Department of Health, shall be anticipated as revenue in the General Fund available for health--related purposes.
Furthermore, the remaining revenue attributable to this fee shall be available to carry out the provisions of section 7 of P.L.1992,
c.160 (C.26:2H--18.57), as determined by the Commissioner of Health, and subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of
Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the State Treasurer shall transfer to the Health Care Subsidy Fund,
established pursuant to section 8 of P.L.1992, c.160 (C.26:2H--18.58), only those additional revenues generated from third party
liability recoveries, excluding NJ FamilyCare, by the State arising from a review by the Director of the Division of Budget and
Accounting of hospital payments reimbursed from the Health Care Subsidy Fund with service dates that are after the date of
enactment of P.L.1996, c.29.
Any change in program eligibility criteria and increases in the types of services or rates paid for services to or on behalf of clients for all
programs under the purview of the Department of Health, not mandated by federal law, first shall be approved by the Director of the
Division of Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, fees, fines, penalties and assessments owed to the Department of
Health shall be offset against payments due and owing from other appropriated funds.

programs throughout the Department of Health are appropriated for the same purpose, subject to the approval of the Director of the
Division of Budget and Accounting.

HUMAN SERVICES
OVERVIEW
Mission
The Department of Human Services (DHS) contracts, collaborates
and partners with federal, state and community--based organizations
to maximize resources and provide an array of services statewide that
promote independence, dignity, choice and assistance for aging
adults, individuals and families with low incomes and people with
disabilities.
Goals
The DHS seeks to:
S Provide access to subsidized health insurance through multiple
plans for qualified adults and children.
S Supervise public and private agencies to ensure the delivery of
financial assistance and support services to qualified individuals and
families.
S Administer contracts for community--based service options that
allow aging adults and individuals with developmental disabilities,
physical disabilities, mental illness and substance use disorders to
live in the least restrictive settings while accessing the services they
need.
S Provide the necessary care to residents in developmental centers
and patients in psychiatric hospitals, with the goal of helping clients
make transitions back to community--based settings.
S Supply information and referral services to people with disabilities
and their families, focusing on individuals who have acquired a
disability as adults, whether through illness or injury.
S Promote and provide services for the education, employment,
independence and eye health of people who are blind or vision
impaired.
S Increase awareness and provide education, advocacy and direct
services to eliminate barriers and promote increased accessibility to
programs, services and information routinely available on behalf of
people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
S Advance Employment First as an inclusive policy that promotes
competitive employment as the preferred post--education activity for
everyone, particularly people with disabilities.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the DHS totals $6.573 billion, a
decrease of $140.1 million or 2.1% over the fiscal 2016 adjusted
appropriation of $6.713 billion. This decrease is partly attributable to
increased funding from the Health Care Subsidy Fund, which has
additional resources available due to decreased funding needs for
services to the uninsured as a result of substantially increased
enrollment in NJ FamilyCare since the Administration’s 2014
expansion of the program.
Since the Governor’s decision to expand NJ FamilyCare in 2014, an
additional 434,000 uninsured New Jersey residents have gained
coverage under NJ FamilyCare. For the first time, many of these
individuals now receive preventive and specialized healthcare
services from local physicians, rather than in acute care settings.
The fiscal 2017 budget continues to support and strengthen the safety
net for New Jersey’s most vulnerable citizens. In light of increased
enrollment and demand, State funding for the NJ FamilyCare
program includes additional resources to account for increased costs
related to medical inflation and demographic changes, ensuring
recipients in the program continue to have appropriate access to
health care providers including physician, hospital and pharmaceutical services.
D--159
Similarly, Managed Long Term Services and Supports has resulted
in increased and improved options for in--home assistance and care
that enable elderly individuals and individuals with disabilities to
continue living independently or with family members, while
reducing reliance on institutional facilities.
The fiscal 2017 budget provides $48.8 million of new State and
federal funding to create community placements and services,
including Olmstead. The budget continues to demonstrate the
Division of Developmental Disabilities’ (DDD) commitment to
expanding community--based options for individuals with developmental disabilities. Consistent with the U.S. Supreme Court’s
Olmstead decision, the DDD expects to transition 165 individuals to
community residential settings in fiscal 2017. Overall, the DDD has
dramatically reduced the number of individuals with developmental
disabilities that live in State--operated institutions.
Similarly, the fiscal 2017 budget increases options for people with
mental illness, consistent with the U.S. Supreme Court’s Olmstead
decision. In the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services
(DMHAS), $2.5 million of State funding is provided to develop 220
new community--based beds. Of these beds, 165 are specifically for
patients discharged from the State’s psychiatric hospitals, and
another 55 will serve individuals at risk of institutionalization.
The fiscal 2017 budget for the DMHAS also provides for an increase
in behavioral health rates. A combined State and federal investment
of more than $127 million will allow the State to provide more
competitive reimbursement rates for services and providers. Further,
an additional $1.7 million in funding will allow for the expansion of
the Recovery Coach Program into six additional counties. This
program connects drug overdose survivors with treatment,
counseling and support services.
Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services
The Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS)
operates State psychiatric hospitals to serve individuals with mental
illness who have been legally committed to a State facility for
treatment. These facilities include general adult psychiatric hospitals
as well as the Ann Klein Forensic Center in Mercer County, which
provides adult forensic psychiatric services. Combined, the hospitals
serve approximately 1,600 people daily. In addition, the DMHAS
provides treatment services to individuals committed to the State’s
sexually violent predator population in coordination with the
Department of Corrections.
The DMHAS also administers State Aid to support low-- or
no--income patients in four county--operated psychiatric facilities in
Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Union counties.
The DMHAS is responsible for mental health and substance use
treatment and recovery support services and substance use disorder
prevention services in New Jersey. The DMHAS plans, coordinates
and contracts with community provider agencies to ensure that a wide
array of community--based mental health and substance use disorder
services are available to consumers and their families, including
prevention and early intervention activities, emergency/screening
services, outpatient counseling, partial and day treatment services,
case management, residential and supported housing, jail diversion
services, family support, self--help centers, supported employment
and integrated behavioral health services (mental health and primary
health) through the behavioral health home pilots.
The DMHAS remains committed to advancing community
placement for individuals who no longer require or who do not need
a hospital setting, in accordance with the U.S. Supreme Court’s
Olmstead decision.
HUMAN SERVICES
Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services
transitioned to Managed Long Term Services and Supports during
fiscal 2015. The Personal Preference Program allows NJ FamilyCare
recipients eligible for NJ FamilyCare Personal Care Assistant
services to direct their own care. In addition, the Division is the
State’s lead agency for brain injury services and administers the New
Jersey Traumatic Brain Injury Fund, as well as the Community
Discharge Initiative and Personal Assistance Services Program.
Finally, the Division currently serves individuals who actively
benefit from the WorkAbility program, which allows people who are
working to maintain their NJ FamilyCare benefits.
Through the State’s NJ FamilyCare program, the Division of Medical
Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS) provides New Jersey’s
eligible residents with access to low or no cost health care. Currently,
more than 1.7 million people are covered by NJ FamilyCare, with
over 93% enrolled in contracted Managed Care Organizations
(MCOs).
The DMAHS works closely with the Divisions of Aging Services,
Mental Health and Addiction Services and Developmental
Disabilities to advance comprehensive initiatives, including
Managed Long Term Services and Supports, home and community-based services, the Interim Managing Entity and medical care for
individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Division of Aging Services
The Division of Aging Services (DoAS) supports home and
community--based services for older adults, or individuals who have
physical disabilities, and their caregivers. The DoAS provides a full
range of supportive services, including home care services, Managed
Long Term Services and Supports, and rate setting and
reimbursement of nursing facility care provided to NJ FamilyCare
beneficiaries. The DoAS provides technical assistance and grants to
support New Jersey’s 21 County Area Agencies on Aging and other
local organizations that improve the quality of life for New Jersey’s
older residents. These programs include congregate and home
delivered meals, informational assistance, outreach, personal care,
legal services, transportation, telephone reassurance, housekeeping
and chore services, case management, respite care, Alzheimer’s adult
day care and adult protective services.
As part of the Medicaid Comprehensive Waiver approved by the
federal government in 2012, nursing facility and community--based
NJ FamilyCare long term care services and supports transitioned to
Managed Long Term Services and Supports during fiscal 2015. This
transition has improved care coordination for seniors and people with
disabilities, and expanded access to home and community--based
services.
Within the DoAS, the Office of Support Services administers the
Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) and
Senior Gold programs. These programs provide prescription drug
benefits to eligible adults over 65 years of age and individuals who
are disabled as defined by the federal Social Security Act.
Additionally, the Office screens, refers and determines eligibility for
seniors and people with disabilities for various State and federal
assistance programs.
The Office of the Public Guardian provides guardianship services for
adults age 60 and older who have been deemed by the courts to be in
need of a guardian or conservator. Client services are individualized
and dependent on the client’s personal needs. Services include legal
assistance, social service plans, investigations into family/social
history and financial management.
Division of Disability Services
The Division of Disability Services (DDS) provides information and
referral assistance to people of all ages with varying disabilities and
their families who are seeking help in locating community services
and supports. The DDS administers the fee--for--service NJ
FamilyCare personal care assistant services and provides technical
assistance to people receiving similar services under managed care,
which provides daily living support to children and adults with
functional limitations. As part of the Medicaid Comprehensive
Waiver approved by the federal government in 2012, community-based NJ FamilyCare long term care services and supports
Division of Developmental Disabilities
The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) coordinates
public funding to support services for eligible New Jersey adults, age
21 and older, with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
Services are primarily provided through contracts with approximately 200 provider agencies and may include day, residential and family
support in the community. The DDD also contracts with individuals
who are licensed to provide residential services in their homes.
Currently, approximately 25,000 New Jersey residents are eligible to
receive some type of community--based service. Additionally, the
DDD operates five residential developmental centers serving
approximately 1,500 people. The DDD is committed to providing a
variety of housing choices for clients, including appropriate
placements in the community in accordance with the U.S. Supreme
Court’s Olmstead decision.
Beginning in 2012, with federal approval of the Comprehensive
Medicaid Waiver, the DDD has implemented a series of changes to
support a system--wide transition from a contract--based model to a
Medicaid--based, fee--for--service (FFS) model. The FFS model,
including the July 2015 launch of the Supports Program, enables the
state to draw down a federal match for all DDD--funded services; to
increase the number of adults served and the number and types of
services available; and to increase opportunities for adults with I/DD
to participate meaningfully in their communities.
Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired
(CBVI) provides and promotes services in the areas of education,
employment, independence and eye health for people who are blind,
deaf--blind or vision impaired as well as for their families and the
community at large.
The CBVI recognizes three core priorities within its mission: (1)
providing specialized services to persons with vision loss, (2)
educating and working in the community to reduce the incidence of
vision loss and (3) improving social attitudes concerning people with
vision loss.
The CBVI works to provide access to services that will enable

The Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DDHH) serves New
Jersey residents who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf--blind or have
speech disorders. Services and programs are provided that foster
independence and improve the quality of life for people with hearing
loss. The DDHH maintains an information and referral center,
provides technical assistance workshops related to hearing loss and
operates assistive technology device demonstration centers. In
addition, the Division operates an Equipment Distribution Program
and the New Jersey Hearing Aid Project that provides reconditioned
hearing aids to eligible applicants.

to work or struggling economically. The DFD also provides nutrition
assistance, substance use disorder referral, child care subsidies, rental

administered through each county’s welfare agency or board of social
services and the Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies.
In addition, the DFD is charged with providing training, funding,
information management and administrative support to the counties,
contracted community providers and other governmental agencies
responsible for administering programs to New Jersey’s citizens in
need.

7700. DIVISION OF MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTION SERVICES
The Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS)
is charged with the coordination and management responsibilities
for State psychiatric institutions and community mental health
services obtained through contracts with community provider
agencies, in order to assure that a comprehensive array of mental
health programs and treatment services exists throughout the state

addiction disorders (C.26:2G); coordinate with Mental Health
Programs (C.26:2B--1); as well as provide counseling programs for
compulsive gamblers. These functions are essential for efficiency,
sound planning and growth to meet present and future needs.
During fiscal 2017, DMHAS plans to transition the majority of
mental health and addictions services currently purchased under

expected to result in a more cost--efficient system with improved
health outcomes for clients.
In addition to providing the overall coordination and management
functions described above, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 30:4--78 as
amended most recently by P.L. 2009, c.68, effective January 1,

Notes:
Actual payroll counts are reported for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 as of December and revised fiscal 2016 as of January. The
budget estimate for fiscal 2017 reflects the number of positions funded.
In fiscal 2017, the DMHAS expects to transition the majority of its mental health and addiction services to a fee--for--service
reimbursement structure from the current contract--based approach; however, fiscal 2017 evaluation data assumes the
same utilization projection methodology as fiscal 2016.
(a) “Cost to State” refers only to the State portion of the costs in each program incurred by the Community Care and
Olmstead Support Services accounts. Additional funds for these programs are available from other divisions and funding
sources and the mix of State and other funding sources is subject to change from year to year.
(b) These funds are transferred to the Department of Health.
(c) Bergen County Hospital has several acute units including a licensed short term care facility unit (STCF) which none of the
other county hospitals have. The acute units were separated from all other units in this data to allow a more accurate
comparison across hospitals.
(d) Camden County has privatized its county psychiatric hospital as of the end of fiscal 2014. Community--based inpatient
beds are being procured to replace the capacity formerly provided by Camden.
(e) Data related to Addictions Services have been restated for all years to reflect a revised, summary level breakdown of
services by level of care and primary drug.
(f) Beginning in fiscal 2016, reporting of primary drug was made mandatory at admission; therefore, the unknown category is
reduced.

Language Recommendations ---- State Aid -- General Fund
The unexpended balance at the end of the preceding fiscal year in the Support of Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals account is
appropriated for the same purpose.
Notwithstanding the provisions of R.S.30:4--78, or any law or regulation to the contrary, the State share of payments from the Support of
Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals account to the several county psychiatric facilities on behalf of the reasonable cost of
maintenance of patients deemed to be county indigents shall be at the rate of 125% of the rate established by the Commissioner of
Human Services for the period July 1 to December 31 and at the rate of 45% of the rate established by the Commissioner of Human
Services for the period January 1 to June 30 such that the total amount to be paid by the State on behalf of county indigent patients for
the calendar year shall not exceed 85% of the total reasonable per capita cost; and further provided that the rate at which the State will
reimburse the county psychiatric hospitals shall not exceed 100% of the per capita rate at which each county pays to the State for the
reasonable cost of maintenance and clothing of each patient residing in a State psychiatric facility, excluding the depreciation, interest
and carry--forward adjustment components of this rate, and including the depreciation, interest, and carry--forward adjustment
components of each individual county psychiatric hospital’s rate established for the period January 1 to December 31 by the
Commissioner of Human Services. The initial determination of whether a county hospital rate exceeds the per capita rate that counties
pay to the State on behalf of applicable patients residing in a State psychiatric facility will be based on a comparison of estimated cost
used to set reimbursement rates for the upcoming calendar year. A second comparison of the actual per diem costs of the county
psychiatric hospital and State psychiatric hospitals will be completed after actual cost reports for the period are available including an
inflationary adjustment for the six--month difference in fiscal reporting periods between State and county hospitals. The county
hospital carry--forward adjustment to be included in rates paid by the State will exclude costs found to exceed 100% of the actual cost
rate of the State psychiatric facilities.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Support of Patients in
County Psychiatric Hospitals is conditioned upon the following provision: payments to county psychiatric hospitals will only be made
after receipt of their claims by the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services. County psychiatric hospitals shall submit such
claims no less frequently than quarterly and within 15 days of the close of each quarter.
With the exception of all past, present, and future revenues representing federal financial participation received by the State from the
United States that is based on payments to hospitals that serve a disproportionate share of low--income patients, which shall be
retained by the State, the sharing of revenues received to defray the State Aid appropriation for the costs of maintaining patients in
State and county psychiatric hospitals shall be based on the same percent as costs are shared between the State and counties.
The amount hereinabove appropriated for State Aid reimbursement payments for maintenance of patients in county psychiatric facilities
shall be limited to inpatient services only, except that such reimbursement shall be paid to a county for outpatient and partial
hospitalization services as defined by the Department of Human Services, if outpatient and/or partial hospitalization services had been
previously provided at the county psychiatric facility prior to January 1, 1998. These outpatient and partial hospitalization payments
shall not exceed the amount of State Aid funds paid to reimburse outpatient and partial hospitalization services provided during
calendar year 1997. In addition, any revision or expansion to the number of inpatient beds or inpatient services provided at such
hospitals which will have a material impact on the amount of State Aid payments made for such services, must first be approved by
the Department of Human Services before such change is implemented.
The amount hereinabove appropriated for the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services for State facility operations and the
amount appropriated as State Aid for the costs of county facility operations are first charged to the federal Disproportionate Share
Hospital (DSH) reimbursements anticipated as Medicaid uncompensated care. Accordingly, DSH revenues earned by the State related
to services provided by county psychiatric hospitals which are supported through this State Aid appropriation shall be considered as
the first source supporting the State Aid appropriation.
In addition to the amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Support of Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals, in the event that the
Assistant Commissioner of the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services determines that, in order to provide the least
restrictive setting appropriate, a patient should be admitted to a county psychiatric hospital in a county other than the one in which the
D--175
HUMAN SERVICES
patient is domiciled rather than to a State psychiatric hospital, there are hereby appropriated such additional amounts as may be
required, as determined by the Assistant Commissioner to reimburse a county for the extra costs, if any, which were incurred in
connection with the care of such patient in a county psychiatric hospital which exceeded the cost of care which would have been
incurred had the patient been placed in a State psychiatric hospital, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget
and Accounting.
The amount hereinabove appropriated for Support of Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals is conditioned upon the following
provisions: County psychiatric hospitals shall: (1) enroll and continue to maintain enrollment as providers in the State’s NJ
FamilyCare program; (2) complete or pursue in good faith the completion of eligibility applications for patients who could be NJ
FamilyCare eligible; (3) bill the NJ FamilyCare program for all applicable services; and (4) neither admit nor discharge patients based
upon NJ FamilyCare eligibility.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Support of Patients in
County Psychiatric Hospitals is conditioned upon the county psychiatric hospitals providing and certifying all information that is
required by the State, in the form specified by the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services, to prepare a complete, accurate,
and timely claim to federal authorities for Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) claim revenues.
Notwithstanding the provisions of R.S.30:4--78, or any other law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for
Support of Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals is conditioned upon the following provisions: for rates effective January 1, 2013,
and any prior year rate adjustments that may be required beginning January 1, 2013, the approval of the State House Commission
shall not be required for the setting of such rates and the Commissioner of Human Services shall set the per capita cost rates to be paid
by the State to the several counties on behalf of the reasonable cost of maintenance of State and county patients in any county
psychiatric facility, including outpatient psychiatric services, the per capita rates which each county shall pay to the Treasurer for the
reasonable cost of maintenance and clothing of each patient residing in a State psychiatric facility having a legal settlement in such
county (“County Patients”), the rates to be paid for the reasonable cost of maintenance and clothing of the convict and criminal
mentally ill in any State psychiatric facility and the cost of maintenance of County Patients residing in State developmental centers or
receiving other residential functional services for the developmentally disabled. Such rates will be fixed no later than October 1 of
each calendar year. Notice of such rates shall be provided by the Commissioner of Human Services to the clerk of the respective
boards of chosen freeholders.
In the event that the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services is notified that a county psychiatric hospital will cease operations
for the current fiscal year, or any portion thereof, in order to assure continuity of care for patients who otherwise would have been
served by the county hospital, as well as to preserve patient and public safety, the Division shall have the authority to transfer funds
from the Support of Patients in County Psychiatric Hospitals account to Direct State Services and Grants--In--Aid accounts in the
Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services, for the fiscal year, subject to a plan approved by the Director of the Division of
Budget and Accounting.
20. PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH
24. SPECIAL HEALTH SERVICES
7540. DIVISION OF MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AND HEALTH SERVICES
The Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services
(DMAHS) administers the NJ FamilyCare program for more than
1.7 million low-- to moderate--income adults and children. With
annual State--wide expenditures of over $15 billion ($13 billion
within the DMAHS), NJ FamilyCare plays a key role in the
direction of the health care delivery system in New Jersey, and
thus, has the unique ability to improve care for those who would
not otherwise have access. Beneficiaries of NJ FamilyCare are
New Jersey residents determined financially and categorically
eligible for medical assistance including low--income individuals,
pregnant women, and certain dependent children, low--income
aged, disabled or blind persons, children in foster care programs,
and certain classes of immigrants.
The majority of the
beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans that provide most
health care benefits in exchange for a per member, per month
payment. In 2015, these plans were administered by four managed
care organizations (listed in order of enrollment): Horizon NJ
Health, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, Amerigroup New
Jersey and WellCare Health Plans of New Jersey. Program costs
are shared between the State and federal government at varied rates
depending on beneficiary income or the services provided.
OBJECTIVES
individuals, pregnant women and certain dependent children,
low--income disabled or blind persons, Supplemental Security
Income recipients, children in foster care programs, persons
qualifying for the State’s Qualified Income Trust programs, or
Medical Assistance Only, and certain classes of refugees and
immigrants. In addition, the NJ FamilyCare program provides
subsidized health care coverage to eligible children, parents,
caretakers and childless adults through Medicaid Title XIX or
the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Title XXI.
1. To provide subsidized access to affordable health care
coverage through the NJ FamilyCare program’s traditional
and innovative delivery system models in a manner that is
quality performance driven and fiscally sustainable.
Beneficiaries will have a streamlined enrollment experience;
access to a robust network of qualified providers; and
improved quality of care.
2. To optimize State resources through improved beneficiary
health outcomes; use of innovative health care delivery
models; continuous Division performance monitoring and
analysis; and improved use of technology to enhance
operations. Beneficiaries of NJ FamilyCare include New
Jersey residents determined financially and categorically
eligible for medical assistance including low--income

determination and health plan selection. Maintains the
DMAHS’s network of fee--for--service providers as well as
monitors the health plans contracted with the DMAHS and
provides overall program policy direction and management.
Principal units of the Division include: fiscal, managed care,
information systems, legal, operations and quality assurance.
22. General Medical Services Distributes payments to providers
of medical care for services rendered on behalf of recipients
covered by the various programs. With over 90% of NJ
FamilyCare recipients now enrolled in managed care, most
Division expenditures are in the form of monthly capitation
payments to managed care organizations who coordinate
recipient care and make payments to health care providers.
Payments that remain fee--for--service include select inpatient
and outpatient general hospital services, psychiatric hospital,
dental, home health, clinical services, rehabilitation, x--ray,
laboratory services, prosthetic devices, medical supplies,
medical transportation, prescribed drugs, and Medicare
premiums.

Notes:
Actual payroll counts are reported for fiscal years 2015 and 2016 as of December and revised fiscal year 2016 as of January.
The Budget Estimate for fiscal year 2017 reflects the number of positions funded.
Average cost per client figures in fiscal years 2014, 2015, and 2016 are affected by the expiration of the Affordable Care
Act’s temporary federal funding to reimburse physicians for certain primary care services at Medicare rates.
(a) Amounts for nursing home and community--based residents represent all costs, including acute care services.
(b) Federal match rate for calendar years 2014 through 2016 is 100%. In 2017, the match rate declines to 95% as outlined in
the Affordable Care Act. As of January 1, 2014, the General Assistance population, adults up to 133% of the Federal
Poverty Line (FPL), became part of the NJ FamilyCare Adult Expansion.
(c) Federal match rate for federal fiscal years through 2015 is 65%. In federal fiscal year 2016, the match rate increases to
88% as outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
(d) Costs for these services are included within the total expenditures by eligibility group.

whichever is less. Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, but subject to any necessary federal
approval and/or change in federal law, receipt of such rewards shall not affect an applicant’s individual financial eligibility for the
programs administered by DMAHS, or for PAAD or Work First New Jersey General Public Assistance programs.

Services program classification are subject to the following condition: the Commissioner of Human Services is authorized to

future enrollments of such persons in the NJ FamilyCare program; and (b) as of July 1, 2011, any adult alien lawfully admitted for
permanent residence, but who has lived in the United States for less than five full years after such lawful admittance and whose
enrollment in the NJ FamilyCare program was terminated on or before July 1, 2010 shall not be eligible to be enrolled in the NJ

Premiums received from families enrolled in the NJ FamilyCare program established pursuant to P.L.2005, c.156 (C.30:4J--8 et al.) are
appropriated for NJ FamilyCare payments.
Subject to federal approval, the appropriations for those programs within the General Medical Services program classification are
conditioned upon the Department of Human Services implementing policies that would limit the ability of persons who have the
financial ability to provide for their own long--term care needs to manipulate current NJ FamilyCare rules to avoid payment for that
care. The Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services shall require, in the case of a married individual requiring long--term
care services, that the portion of the couple’s resources which are not protected for the needs of the community spouse be used solely
for the purchase of long--term care services.
Such amounts as may be necessary are hereinabove appropriated from enhanced audit recoveries obtained by the Department of Human
Services to fund the costs of enhanced audit recovery efforts of the Department within the General Medical Services program
classification, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Language Recommendations ---- Direct State Services -- General Fund
When any action by a county welfare agency, whether alone or in combination with the Department of Human Services, results in a
recovery of improperly granted medical assistance, the Department of Human Services may reimburse the county welfare agency in
the amount of 50% of the non--federal share.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program is subject to the following condition: any third party, as defined in subsection
m. of section 3 of P.L.1968, c.413 (C.30:4D--3), or in 42 U.S.C. s.1396a(a)(25)(A), including, but not limited to, a pharmacy benefit
manager writing health, casualty, or malpractice insurance policies in the State or covering residents of this State, shall enter into an
agreement with the Department of Human Services to permit and assist the matching of the Department of Human Services’ program
eligibility and/or adjudication claims files against that third party’s eligibility and/or adjudicated claims files for the purpose of the
coordination of benefits, utilizing, if necessary, social security numbers as common identifiers.
Receipts from the Office of the Public Guardian for Elderly Adults are appropriated to the Office of the Public Guardian.
Language Recommendations ---- Grants--In--Aid -- General Fund
All funds recovered pursuant to P.L.1968, c.413 (C.30:4D--1 et seq.) and P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.) during the preceding fiscal
year are appropriated for payments to providers in the same program classification from which the recovery originated.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, a sufficient portion of receipts generated or savings realized in the
Medical Services for the Aged or Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled Grants--In--Aid accounts from initiatives
included in the current fiscal year appropriations act may be transferred to administration accounts to fund costs incurred in realizing
these additional receipts or savings, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.
In order to permit flexibility in implementing ElderCare Initiatives hereinabove appropriated as part of Community Based Senior
Programs, amounts may be transferred between Direct State Services and Grants--In--Aid accounts, subject to the approval of the
Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting. Notice thereof shall be provided to the Legislative Budget and Finance Officer on

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged and Disabled program classification and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program account shall be expended for
fee--for--service prescription drug claims with no Medicare Part D coverage except under the following conditions: (1) the maximum
allowable cost for legend and non--legend drugs shall be calculated based on the lowest of (i) the Estimated Acquisition Cost (EAC),
defined as a drug’s Wholesale Acquisition Cost less a volume discount of one (1) percent; (ii) the federal upper limit (FUL); or (iii)
D--191
HUMAN SERVICES
the State upper limit (SUL); and (iv) cost acquisition data submitted by providers of pharmaceutical services for single--source or
brand--name multi--source drugs where an alternative pricing benchmark is not available; (2) pharmacy reimbursement for legend and
non--legend drugs shall be calculated based on (i) the lowest of the EAC, FUL, or SUL plus a dispensing fee of $3.73 to $3.99; or a
provider’s usual and customary charge; or (ii) the lower of cost acquisition data submitted by providers of pharmaceutical services for
single--source or brand--name multi--source drugs, where an alternative pricing benchmark is not available, plus a professional fee; or
a provider’s usual and customary charge. To effectuate the calculation of SUL rates and/or the calculation of single--source and
brand--name multi--source legend and non--legend drug costs where an alternative pricing benchmark is not available, which is
intended to be budget neutral, the Department of Human Services shall mandate ongoing submission of current drug acquisition data
by providers, of pharmaceutical services. No funds hereinabove appropriated shall be paid to any entity that fails to submit required
data.
The amounts hereinabove appropriated for payments for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled program, P.L.1975,
c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.), the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program, P.L.2001, c.96 (C.30:4D--43 et seq.), and Community
Based Senior Programs are available for the payment of obligations applicable to prior fiscal years.
Benefits provided under the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program, P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.),
and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program, P.L.2001, c.96 (C.30:4D--43 et seq.), shall be the last resource benefits,
notwithstanding any provisions contained in contracts, wills, agreements, or other instruments. Any provision in a contract of
insurance, will, trust agreement, or other instrument which reduces or excludes coverage or payment to an individual because of that
individual’s eligibility for, or receipt of, PAAD or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program benefits shall be void, and no PAAD
and Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program payments shall be made as a result of any such provision.
Of the amount hereinabove appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled--Claims program, notwithstanding the
provisions of section 3 of P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--22) or any law or regulation to the contrary, the copayment in the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled program shall be $5 for generic drugs and $7 for brand name drugs.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, subject to the approval of a plan by the Commissioner of Human
Services, no funds appropriated for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program, pursuant to P.L.1975,
c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.), or the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program (Senior Gold), pursuant to P.L.2001, c.96 (C.30:4D--43
et seq.), shall be expended, when PAAD or Senior Gold is the primary payer, unless participating pharmaceutical manufacturing
companies execute contracts with the Department of Human Services. Name brand manufacturers must provide for the payment of
rebates to the State on the same basis as provided for in subsections (a) through (c) of section 1927 of the federal Social Security Act,
42 U.S.C. s.1396r--8.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program, pursuant to P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.), and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount
Program, pursuant to P.L.2001, c.96 (C.30:4D--43 et seq.), shall be expended unless participating pharmaceutical manufacturing
companies execute contracts with the Department of Human Services, providing for the payment of rebates to the State. Furthermore,
rebates from pharmaceutical manufacturing companies for prescriptions purchased by the PAAD program and the Senior Gold
Prescription Discount Program shall continue during the current fiscal year, provided that the manufacturer’s rebates for PAAD
claims paid as secondary to Medicare Part D and for the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program shall apply only to the amount
paid by the State under the PAAD and Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program. All revenues from such rebates during the current
fiscal year are appropriated for the PAAD program and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program.
In addition to the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled and the Senior Gold
Prescription Discount programs, there are appropriated from the General Fund and available federal matching funds such additional
amounts as may be required for the payment of claims, credits, and rebates, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of
Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the appropriations for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged
and Disabled program and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program are conditioned upon the Department of Human Services
coordinating benefits with any voluntary prescription drug mail--order or specialty pharmacy in a Medicare Part D provider network
or private third party liability plan network for beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicare Part D program or beneficiaries with primary
prescription coverage that requires use of mail order. The mail--order program may waive, discount, or rebate the beneficiary
copayment and mail--order pharmacy providers may dispense up to a 90--day supply on prescription refills with the voluntary
participation of the beneficiary, subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Human Services and the Director of the Division of
Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) programs are conditioned upon the
Department of Human Services coordinating the benefits of the PAAD programs with the prescription drug benefits of the federal
“Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003” as the primary payer due to the current federal
prohibition against State automatic enrollment of PAAD recipients in the federal program. The PAAD program benefit and
reimbursement shall only be available to cover the beneficiary cost share to in--network pharmacies and for deductible and coverage
gap costs (as determined by the Commissioner of Human Services) associated with enrollment in Medicare Part D for beneficiaries of
the PAAD and Senior Gold Prescription Discount programs, and for Medicare Part D premium costs for PAAD beneficiaries.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged or Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program and Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program
accounts shall be available as payment as a PAAD program or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program benefit to any pharmacy
that is not enrolled as a participating pharmacy in a pharmacy network under Medicare Part D.

HUMAN SERVICES
Consistent with the requirements of the federal “Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003” and the
current federal prohibition against State automatic enrollment of Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program and Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program recipients, no funds
hereinabove appropriated to the PAAD program or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program accounts shall be expended for any
individual unless the individual enrolled in the PAAD program or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program provides all data
necessary to enroll the individual in Medicare Part D, including data required for the subsidy assistance, as outlined by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) programs, and Senior Gold Prescription
Discount Program shall be conditioned upon the following provision: no funds shall be appropriated for the refilling of a prescription
drug when paid by PAAD or the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program as the primary payer until such time as the original
prescription is 85% finished.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program or the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program shall be expended to cover
medications not on the formulary of a PAAD program or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program beneficiary’s Medicare Part D
plan. This exclusion shall not apply to those drugs covered by the PAAD program and Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program
which are specifically excluded by the federal Medicare Prescription Drug Program. In addition, this exclusion shall not impact the
beneficiary’s rights, guaranteed by the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA), to appeal
the medical necessity of coverage for drugs not on the formulary of a Medicare Part D plan.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program or the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program shall be expended for
diabetic testing materials and supplies which are covered under the federal Medicare Part B program, or for vitamins, cough/cold
medications, drugs used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, or cosmetic drugs, including, but not limited to: drugs used for
baldness, weight loss, and skin conditions.
From the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged -- Claims and Senior Gold Prescription Discount
Program, an amount not to exceed $2,850,000 may be transferred to various accounts as required, including Direct State Services
accounts, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, in order to maximize drug coverage under Medicare Part D, the
appropriation for the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program is conditioned on the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program
being designated the authorized representative for the purpose of coordinating benefits with the Medicare drug program, including
appeals of coverage determinations. The Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program is authorized to represent program beneficiaries
in the pursuit of such coverage. Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program representation shall include, but not be limited to, the
following actions: pursuit of appeals, grievances, and coverage determinations.
In order to permit flexibility in implementing the ElderCare Advisory Commission Initiatives, hereinabove appropriated as part of
Community Based Senior Programs within the Programs for the Aged program classification, amounts may be transferred between

In addition to the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled and Hearing Aid Assistance
for the Aged and Disabled programs, there are appropriated from the Casino Revenue Fund and available federal matching funds such
additional amounts as may be required for the payment of claims, credits, and rebates, subject to the approval of the Director of the
Division of Budget and Accounting.
All funds recovered under P.L.1968, c.413 (C.30:4D--1 et seq.) and P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.), during the current fiscal year are

as a result of any such provision.
Of the amount hereinabove appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled--Claims program, notwithstanding the
provisions of section 3 of P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--22) or any law or regulation to the contrary, the copayment in the Pharmaceutical

HUMAN SERVICES
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program, pursuant to P.L.1975, c.194 (C.30:4D--20 et seq.), shall be expended unless participating
pharmaceutical manufacturing companies execute contracts with the Department of Human Services, providing for the payment of
rebates to the State. Furthermore, rebates from pharmaceutical manufacturing companies for prescriptions purchased by the PAAD
program shall continue during the current fiscal year, provided that the manufacturers’ rebates for PAAD claims paid as secondary to
Medicare Part D shall apply only to the amount paid by the State under the PAAD program. All revenues from such rebates during the
current fiscal year are appropriated for the PAAD program.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the appropriations for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged
and Disabled program are conditioned upon the Department of Human Services coordinating benefits with any voluntary prescription
drug mail--order or specialty pharmacy in a Medicare Part D provider network or private third party liability plan network for
beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicare Part D program or beneficiaries with primary prescription coverage that requires use of mail
order. The mail--order program may waive, discount, or rebate the beneficiary copayment and mail--order pharmacy providers may
dispense up to a 90--day supply on prescription refills with the voluntary participation of the beneficiary, subject to the approval of the
Commissioner of Human Services and the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated to the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program is conditioned upon the Department of Human Services coordinating the
benefits of the PAAD program with the prescription drug benefits of the federal “Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and
Modernization Act of 2003” as the primary payer due to the current federal prohibition against State automatic enrollment of PAAD
program recipients in the federal program. The PAAD program benefit and reimbursement shall only be available to cover the
beneficiary cost share to in--network pharmacies and for deductible and coverage gap costs (as determined by the Commissioner of
Human Services) associated with enrollment in Medicare Part D for beneficiaries of the PAAD and the Senior Gold Prescription
Discount Program, and for Medicare Part D premium costs for PAAD program beneficiaries.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program accounts shall be available as payment as a
PAAD program or Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program benefit to any pharmacy that is not enrolled as a participating
pharmacy in a pharmacy network under Medicare Part D.
Consistent with the requirements of the federal “Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003” and the
current federal prohibition against State automatic enrollment of Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD)
program recipients, no funds hereinabove appropriated from the PAAD account shall be expended for any individual enrolled in the
PAAD program unless the individual provides all data that may be necessary to enroll the individual in Medicare Part D, including
data required for the subsidy assistance, as outlined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program shall be conditioned upon the following provision: no funds shall be
appropriated for the refilling of a prescription drug paid by PAAD as a primary payer until such time as the original prescription is
85% finished.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program shall be expended to cover medications not on the formulary of a PAAD
program beneficiary’s Medicare Part D plan. This exclusion shall not apply to those drugs covered by PAAD which are specifically
excluded by the federal Medicare Prescription Drug Program. In addition, this exclusion shall not impact the beneficiary’s rights,
guaranteed by the “Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003” (MMA), to appeal the medical
necessity of coverage for drugs not on the formulary of a Medicare Part D plan.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no amounts hereinabove appropriated for the Pharmaceutical
Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program shall be expended for diabetic testing materials and supplies which are covered
under the federal Medicare Part B program, or for vitamins, cough/cold medications, drugs used for the treatment of erectile
dysfunction, or cosmetic drugs including but not limited to: drugs used for baldness, weight loss, and skin conditions.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, no funds appropriated in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the
Aged and Disabled program classification shall be expended for fee--for--service prescription drug claims with no Medicare Part D
coverage except under the following conditions: (1) the maximum allowable cost for legend and non--legend drugs shall be calculated
based on the lowest of (i) the Estimated Acquisition Cost (EAC), defined as a drug’s Wholesale Acquisition Cost less a volume
discount of 1%; (ii) the federal upper limit (FUL); or (iii) the State upper limit (SUL); and (iv) cost acquisition data submitted by
providers of pharmaceutical services for single--source or brand--name multi--source drugs where an alternative pricing benchmark is
not available; (2) pharmacy reimbursement for legend and non--legend drugs shall be calculated based on the (i) the lowest of the
EAC, FUL or SUL plus a dispensing fee of $3.73 to $3.99; or a provider’s usual and customary charge; or (ii) the lower of cost
acquisition data submitted by providers of pharmaceutical services for single--source or brand--name multi--source drugs, where an
alternative pricing benchmark is not available, plus a professional fee; or a provider’s usual and customary charge. To effectuate the
calculation of SUL rates and/or the calculation of single--source and brand--name multi--source legend and non--legend drug costs
where an alternative pricing benchmark is not available, which is intended to be budget neutral, the Department of Human Services
shall mandate ongoing submission of current drug acquisition data by providers, of pharmaceutical services. No funds hereinabove
appropriated shall be paid to any entity that fails to submit required data.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, of the amount hereinabove appropriated for the Community Based
Senior Programs (CRF) account, $175,000 shall be charged to the Casino Simulcasting Fund.

OBJECTIVES
a provider agency. Through a monthly cash allowance,
participants work with a consultant to develop a cash
management plan by which they decide the services they need
and the individuals and/or agencies they wish to hire to
provide the identified services. The program requires greater
consumer responsibility but offers participants greater control,
flexibility and choice. NJ Workability offers people with
disabilities who are working, and whose income would
otherwise make them ineligible for NJ FamilyCare, the
opportunity to pay a small premium and receive full NJ
FamilyCare coverage. People with disabilities, between the
ages of 16 and 64, can qualify for the program with annual
gross incomes as high as $60,180. Personal Assistant Services
Program (PASP) provides routine, non--medical assistance to
people with disabilities who are employed, involved in
community volunteer work or attending school. Personal
assistants help with tasks such as light housekeeping, bathing,
dressing, preparing meals, shopping, driving or using public
transportation. The number of hours a person receives
depends on individual need but can be as great as 40 hours per
week. The DDS provides comprehensive information and
referral services and also publishes the New Jersey Resources
Directory, which lists State and national resources for people
with disabilities. Community Discharge Initiative: The
mission of the Division has been expanded to include
community discharge from Nursing Homes. Staff will assist
individuals who have expressed a desire to return to the
community to make attainable discharge plans and identify
supports and resources.
1. To facilitate the maximum independence and participation of
people with disabilities in community life through information
and access to services and supports, as well as to foster
coordination and cooperation among government agencies
providing services to this population.
2. To function as a single point of entry for all seeking disability
related information in New Jersey.
3. To administer an array of direct services and innovative
programs to improve the quality of life for individuals with
disabilities.
4. To facilitate and promote the nursing home discharge of
individuals with disabilities who wish to return to the
community and to provide and coordinate services for those
individuals to ensure their successful reintegration into the
community.

32. OPERATION AND SUPPORT OF EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
The Division of Developmental Disabilities administers five
residential developmental centers for individuals with developmental disabilities. All are certified by the federal government as
ICF/MR’s and are supported by a combination of federal funds and
State appropriations. The centers provide a range of vocational,
habilitative, health, psychological and social services for their
residents. Many residents of the centers have both a moderate to
profound developmental disability and medical and/or physical
issues, and some also have a psychiatric diagnosis. The five centers
are:
Woodbine Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.), founded
in 1921 and located on 250 acres in Woodbine, Cape May County,
provides care and training for men with all levels of capability.
The Center’s program is designed to encourage residents to
become as self--sufficient as possible.
New Lisbon Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.) founded
in 1914 in New Lisbon, Burlington County, is located on a 1,896
acre tract of land at the edge of the Pinelands. New Lisbon serves
primarily men; however, it has one living unit for women. During
fiscal 1983, New Lisbon began operating a long--term care facility
for geriatric and medically compromised residents. In fiscal 1998,
the Moderate Security Unit for court--ordered individuals with
developmental disabilities was moved to New Lisbon.
Green Brook Regional Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.), located in
Green Brook, Somerset County, is a specialized geriatric center
that serves residents over age 55. Residents of the Center range
from moderately to profoundly developmentally disabled. Green
Brook opened in 1981 in a three--story building that previously
housed Raritan Valley Hospital.
Hunterdon Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.), founded
in 1969, is located in Clinton, Hunterdon County. Most of its
residents have profound developmental disabilities and almost half
use a wheel chair for mobility. Other disabilities include vision
impairment, hearing impairment, cerebral palsy and seizure
disorders.
Vineland Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.), founded in
1888 in Vineland, Cumberland County, provides services for
females with all levels of developmental disabilities. The Center’s
257 acres encompass two campuses ---- East Campus at Main and
Landis Avenues and West Campus on Orchard Road. During fiscal
year 2011, however, operations at the West Campus ceased and
residents moved to community settings and other facilities,
including the East Campus.
North Jersey Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.) was
closed on July 1, 2014.
Woodbridge Developmental Center (C.30:4--165.1 et seq.) was
closed on January 9, 2015.

Actual payroll counts are reported for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 as of December and revised fiscal 2016 as of January. The
budget estimate for fiscal 2017 reflects the number of positions funded.
(a) The average daily population figures reflect the finding of the Task Force on Developmental Center Closure to close
North Jersey and Woodbridge Developmental Centers. The North Jersey Developmental Center closed on July 1, 2014.
No data are therefore presented for fiscal 2015, 2016, or 2017. The Woodbridge Developmental Center closed on
January 9, 2015. No data are therefore presented for fiscal 2016, or 2017. Overall census data reflect the redistribution
of clients across the system.

NOTES
LABOR AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
OVERVIEW
Mission
The Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) helps
individuals obtain employment; spearheads efforts to provide a
world--class workforce with the skills needed by the state’s
industries; assists employers in hiring workers and upgrading the
skills of their employees; provides vital income security to workers
who are unemployed or unable to work due to illness, accident or
injury; equitably enforces New Jersey’s labor laws and standards;
analyzes the state’s economic, labor market and demographic
information; helps individuals with disabilities succeed in the
workplace; promotes labor management harmony; and protects the
health and safety of workers on the job.
Budget Highlights
The fiscal year 2017 budget for the Department of Labor and
Workforce Development totals $167.3 million, the same level as the
fiscal 2016 adjusted appropriation.
Workforce Development
The Workforce Development Partnership Fund provides funding for
employers to invest in the occupational and literacy skills of their
employees and assists unemployed individuals in obtaining these
critical skills. This fund is financed through a dedicated assessment
on workers and their employers.
The One--Stop Career Centers offer job seekers career counseling,
literacy and basic skills assistance, and funding for occupational and
on--the--job training. The Department’s Jobs4Jersey.com (J4J)
website connects job seekers to appropriate job postings, offers
career information and provides details about training opportunities.
With J4J, employers can post employment opportunities requiring
specific skills and experience. The Department’s seven Talent
Networks connect job seekers, employers and educational
institutions in order to build a skilled workforce for the state’s key
industries.
Supplemental Workforce Fund for Basic Skills
The New Jersey Supplemental Workforce Fund for Basic Skills
(SWFBS) invests in literacy and basic skills development of
unemployed workers and provides grants to employers to provide
literacy training to their employees. This fund is financed from a
portion of employer and employee tax contributions.
Labor Standards and Safety Enforcement
The Labor Standards and Safety Enforcement directorate administers
and enforces a wide variety of labor laws and regulations. These
include the minimum wage law, overtime wage rates, rules for the
employment of minors as well as the Prevailing Wage Act that applies
to most publicly funded construction projects, including school
construction. The enforcement of these laws provides employees
with safe and equitable working conditions, protects good faith
employers from unfair competition by employers who willfully
violate labor laws and protects workers and the general public from
hazardous workplace practices.
Vocational Rehabilitation Services
The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) assists
individuals with disabilities to achieve employment outcomes
consistent with their strengths, priorities, needs, abilities and
capabilities. Eligible individuals with disabilities can receive
rehabilitative services ranging from counseling and guidance,
evaluations, therapy, treatment, training, education, job coaching,
assistive technology and job placement.
Unemployment Insurance
LWD administers the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program, which
primarily provides partial wage replacement benefits to eligible
workers who have become involuntarily unemployed. The program
D--219
acts as a safety net for New Jersey workers and their families during
periods of economic downturn.
Temporary Disability Insurance
The Division of Temporary Disability Insurance provides workers
with temporary benefits should they become disabled due to
non--work related illness or injury. Workers who become disabled
may be eligible for benefits under the State Plan or an approved
private plan. For those individuals who become disabled during the
period they are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits, the
Disability During Unemployment program offers protection.
Additionally, since fiscal year 2010, Family Leave Insurance benefits
are available to covered workers so they can bond with newborn or
newly adopted children or care for seriously ill family members.
Each program is funded from dedicated taxes paid by employers
and/or employees.
Workers’ Compensation
The Division of Workers’ Compensation facilitates the adjudication
of benefits to the injured workers of New Jersey. Most importantly,
the Division serves as a forum in which a fair and impartial hearing
can determine whether compensation is warranted. The Division is
supported by dedicated funding from surcharges paid by employers.
Labor Research and Information
The Office of Research and Information (ORI) collects, analyzes and
disseminates economic, labor market and demographic data,
identifies workforce and economic trends for the state’s key
industries, and produces reports on employment and population
trends. The ORI develops performance metrics for the Department’s
programs, maintains workforce development data systems, analyzes
data to inform program decisions and produces reports on
employment and labor topics. The Center for Occupational
Employment Information within ORI approves occupational training
providers and disseminates career information.
Civil Service Commission
The Civil Service Commission provides a fair and efficient human
resource delivery and support system that serves taxpayer interests
and establishes a recruitment process that selects the most qualified
public sector workforce and an advancement process that encourages
and rewards quality, merit and productivity. The system ensures
proper compensation, classification and compliance with retention
policies and regulations; oversees dispute resolutions; develops
appropriate regulatory policies affecting employees; provides
employee assistance and wellbeing services; and educates existing
employees through a robust continuing education program. The
Civil Service Commission provides jurisdictions the flexibility
necessary to manage their workforce and improve productivity; state
taxpayers a more cost--effective delivery of government services; and
public employees the resources and support needed to perform at
their maximum ability and develop professionally.
--Provide a fair and efficient employee selection system designed to
attract and retain a high--quality, diverse workforce, in consultation
with Civil Service jurisdictions and in accordance with established
merit system principles, guidelines, laws, rules and regulations
governing appointments, advancements and promotions.
--Provide the regulatory framework to equitably and expeditiously
resolve disputes between Civil Service jurisdictions and their
employees.
--Provide services in the areas of classification, employee
compensation, personnel records management, layoff administration, policy development, interpretation of rules, compliance and
organizational design.
--Provide strategic, operational and technical support on a wide range
of issues related to the Civil Service system to include: review and
LABOR AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
establishment of new position classifications; reclassification of
existing positions to different titles; the review and approval of
reductions--in--force; job classification reviews and appeals;
assistance with organizational review and title structures; and
placement services through the administration of the certification
process and determination of certification appeals.
--Provide the necessary administrative support to Commission
employees including facilities, fiscal, human resources and
information technology. For State and local entities, the Office of
Training supports staff development activities by providing
classroom and online training either directly or in concert with
education and training partners. The State of New Jersey Employee
Advisory Service provides State employers and employees
confidential counseling referrals and support services for issues
related to job--performance, mental health, substance use and
employee well--being.
The Civil Service Commission is organizationally in--but--not--of the
Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
Public Employment Relations Commission
The Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) is
organizationally in--but--not--of the Department of Labor and
Workforce Development. PERC focuses on the scope of public
sector negotiations, unfair practices, mediation, fact--finding and
arbitration. The Board of Mediation and the State Employment and
Training Commission (SETC) also retain similar in--but--not--of
status. Specifically, the Board of Mediation monitors labor
negotiations, provides arbitrators to resolve disputes and conducts
consent elections to determine matters of union representation in the
private sector. The State Employment and Training Commission
serves as the Statewide Workforce Development Board, established
under federal and State law, providing strategic guidance and
assisting in the implementation of a coordinated State employment,
training and education policy.
