New Jersey offers two ways to get paid as a family caregiver.
1. Assistance for Community Caregiving: is a non-Medicaid program that enables elderly and/or disabled adults who require nursing facility level of assistance to receive care at home. Under this program, certain family members can be hired and paid to carry out personal care services. Some services may include: adult day and respite care.

2. Personal Preference Program (PPP): is designed to allow elderly and/or disabled individuals who would otherwise require care in a nursing facility to remain at home. This program helps pay for care recipients to hire their own caregivers and control their own care plans. PPP can also cover costs of medical services and home modifications.
