Effective November 1, 2017, the Division’s 1915(c) Community Care Waiver (CCW) was incorporated into New Jersey’s larger and more wide-ranging 1115(a) demonstration waiver, known as the Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver, and was re-named the Community Care Program. This is an administrative adjustment only and will not impact services. 

Community Care Program Policies and Procedures

The Community Care Program Policies & Procedures Manual is the definitive source for all information related to the Community Care Program under Fee-for-Service.

Community Care Program Eligibility

To be eligible for the Community Care Program, an individual must:

  • be reached on the CCP Waiting List or be determined by DDD to be at imminent risk of homelessness
  • meet the functional criteria for eligibility for DDD services
  • meet the additional Level of Care criteria for Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID)
  • meet specific Medicaid requirements regarding income and resources (DDD works with individuals to help establish whether or not they meet these Medicaid requirements)
