Please complete the form in this action center to send emails to your legislators to let them know that NJ's DSPs throughout New Jersey deserve a living wage. Governor Murphy’s budget proposal provides an additional $21 million in funding for DSP wages, this will be matched dollar for dollar by the Federal Government.
There are also bills in the Legislature, S-1194 in the Assembly and A-3297 in the Assembly which would appropriate an additional $16.5 million for DSP wages. These appropriations would then be matched dollar for dollar by the Federal Government. We need to raise our voices so that New Jersey's DSPs can earn a living wage!
