Agency Forms & Resources

Department of Children and Families – Division of Children’s System of Care (CSOC)

The following forms and supporting materials are produced by the Department of Children and Families and are part of the application for eligibility for services provided through the Division of Children’s System of Care (CSOC). The firm posts them here as a resource for families and professionals.

New Jersey Department of Human Services – Division of Developmental Disabilities

The following application package, produced by the New Jersey Department of Human Services’ Division of Developmental Disabilities, is required in order to apply for services and supports. This content was taken from the DDD Eligibility Application page at DHS/DDD’s website, and was current as of 1/30/14.  It is posted here as a resource for families and professionals.

Once you complete this form, it is very important that you mail them to the Community Services Office that serves the county in which you live. Address the envelope to the “Division of Developmental Disabilities Intake.”

After DDD receives your completed Application for Eligibility and Applicant Information Form, a staff person will contact you. The rest of the application materials will then be mailed to you. These will include a Documentation Checklist (sample).

You will need to provide DDD with extensive documentation. Some examples are:

  • medical documentation of your disability
  • your most recent psychological evaluation including the IQ score
  • all available psychological reports
  • Child Study Team or school reports
  • neurological evaluations
  • psychiatric evaluations
  • speech/therapy evaluations
  • copies of your birth certificate, social security and/or your Green Card or proof of U.S. citizenship.

A family member or other interested person can assist an individual in completing an application for DDD eligibility, although they cannot apply on the individual’s behalf.
Please note: A parent or legal guardian of a minor or the legal guardian of an adjudicated incapacitated adult may apply for services on the individual’s behalf. Please see review Division Circular #3 for more details.
