New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:6d-16 - Individual Habilitation Plans; Preparation; Conditions Of Transfer; Review Of Plan

30:6D-16. Individual habilitation plans; preparation; conditions of transfer; review of plan
a. Except in emergency situations, the department shall ensure that an individual habilitation plan is prepared for each developmentally disabled person subject to transfer at least 30 days prior to the time the actual transfer takes place. In addition to conforming to the requirements of sections 11 and 12 of P.L. 1977, c. 82 (C. 30:6D-11, 12), the plan shall state with particularity what habilitation goals shall be achieved for a transfer to be successful and what services, supervision, and living arrangements are needed to secure compliance with this act once the transfer is made. No transfer shall occur until all enumerated elements of the plan can be made available. A copy of the prepared plan shall be immediately given to every person participating in its development and review.

b. Before a transfer occurs, persons participating in the development and review of the plan shall be given the opportunity to inspect the site of the proposed transfer and the site where the proposed services will be rendered. The appointment of a State employee as guardian of the developmentally disabled person shall not relieve the department of its responsibility to give parents and other interested persons an opportunity to participate in the development and review of the plan and to inspect proposed sites. A representative of the operator of the community residential facility shall also be given an opportunity to participate in the development and review of the plan.

c. The department shall ensure that the individual habilitation plan is reviewed not earlier than four weeks and not later than six weeks after the transfer occurs.
