Citation: 3 N.J.A.R. 216
Decision Date: 1980
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: A local county welfare board sought to reduce Title XX Home- maker Health Service received by respondent from four hours a day to two hours a day. The administrative law judge found that respondent was eligible for and in need of homemaker service and on the basis of a standardized review had been classified as 'priority c' by the local agency. The judge found that because of financial limitations, the local agency had uniformly reduced the amount of services available to all those classified as priority c. Noting that if the agency had not undertaken such a reduction it would be unable to supply any services at all, the judge determined that the reduction in respondent's services had been fair and reasonable. Accordingly, the administrative law judge affirmed the action of the local agency.
