Our History

JoannePPL was initially formed to provide assistance to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJ) national pilot demonstrations in Self-Determination in 1999. Since then, PPL staff has continued to participate in advisory committees on the RWJ Cash and Counseling Program. Over the past ten years we have expanded our services and grown considerably. We currently serve more than 38,000 participants in 21 states and the District of Columbia and manage more than $500 million annually. We have contracts with more than 40 state agencies. Many of the programs we serve are funded with state, local, and/or Medicaid funds through state plans or waivers. Other programs are funded through federal grants or a combination of sources.




PPL is a subsidiary of Public Consulting Group, Inc. (PCG). Public Consulting Group, Inc. (PCG) is a management consulting firm that primarily serves public sector education, health, human services, and other state, county, and municipal government clients. Established in 1986 with headquarters in Boston, the firm has extensive experience in all 50 states, clients in six Canadian provinces, and a growing practice in the European Union.
