Citation: 2 N.J.A.R. 245
Decision Date: 1979
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: Agency action reducing homemaker services from four hours daily, seven days a week, to two hours daily, seven days a week due to severe fiscal constraints on the agency's Title XX allocation was reversed. The agency failed to establish that any equitable plan had been formulated for the proposed reduction in expenditures and did not present any financial data to substantiate the claim of insufficient funds. In addition, specific information was lacking as to whether respondent, whose need for homemaker services had not decreased, was eligible for assistance under Medical Assistance for the Aged (MAA) - an alternative program.
