30:6D-12.2 Findings, declarations relative to self-directed support services for persons with developmental disabilities.

2.The Legislature finds and declares that:

a.There is a need for innovative approaches to meet the needs of persons with developmental disabilities;

b.While there are many fine group homes, supervised apartments and other supervised living arrangements for persons with developmental disabilities, there is a need for not only an expansion of the availability of such programs, but also the development of innovative programs that are self-directed by persons with developmental disabilities and their families and guardians;

c.The availability of innovative self-directed programs will expand the capacity of the Department of Human Services to serve the needs of persons with developmental disabilities; and

d.It is important to emphasize that persons with developmental disabilities who participate in these highly desirable self-directed approaches to care retain the rights guaranteed to them under the "Developmentally Disabled Rights Act," P.L.1977, c.82 (C.30:6D-1 et seq.).
