HCBS Statewide Transition Plan

Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Provider Information Webinar (June 28, 2021)

In accordance with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Final Regulation, all HCBS must be delivered in settings that are integrated in, and support full access to, their community. This includes opportunities to seek employment and work in competitive settings within the community, engage in a community life, control personal resources, and receive services in a similar way as individuals who do not receive HCBS. 

An updated site-specific HCBS Criteria Survey is required to be conducted for each existing residential and day setting to determine compliance with the HCBS Final Rule. To assist you with survey completion, the Division has developed HCBS Criteria Survey FAQs.

Please send any questions to the HCBS Helpdesk: DDD.HCBShelpdesk@dhs.nj.gov.
