The Arc of New Jersey logo and information alert notice

In response to many inquiries about the differences between self-directed services through the NJ Medicaid Personal Preference Program (PPP) and the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute has created a fact sheet for families, self-advocates, and professionals.

The following fact sheet addresses eligibility standards, budget determination and use, and record keeping for each program. It also includes a list of key acronyms and a glossary of terms you may encounter while researching which program is right for you.

Click The Arc logo above to download the full fact sheet, or click here for our printer-friendly version. To view all The Arc fact sheets, visit their website at www.thearcfamilyinstitute.org .
