Welcome to NJHelps
What NJHelps can do:
NJHelps is a free and easy guide for you to determine what programs and assistance for which you and your family may be eligible. NJHelps will tell you where to go for help and what to bring with you, after you have answered a few basic questions. NJHelps can also provide you with contact information and links to valuable resources available throughout the State.
What NJHelps CANNOT do:
NJHelps cannot guarantee that you qualify for these programs. You must still apply for help by contacting and filling out the required forms for each program.
How to Use NJHelps
NJHelps will ask a few questions about your household, income, and expenses. All the answers are anonymous and can never be linked to you. The typical session lasts 5 to 15 minutes depending on how many people live with you.
We realize you may not have all the requested income and expense information easily at hand. If you do not, enter your best guesses and check the results. Then, when you have better information, try NJHelps again. More accurate income and expense information yields more accurate results.
Sometimes all the questions and information will not fit on one screen. Make sure to scroll down and answer all the questions that apply to you.
