Important Information for on the Upcoming Plastic Bag Ban Taking Effect May 4

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is urging the public and local governments to get ready for the state’s plastic bag and polystyrene foam food-service container law that takes effect May 4, by stocking up on reusable bags and visiting the DEP’s Get Past Plastic website. The website offers a wealth of information about the law, including information about the types of reusable bags you should use and a very thorough FAQ section. It also includes information about single-use plastic straw requirements. The NJ Clean Communities Council has been working closely with the state to educate the public and businesses through its BagUpNJ campaign. For more information, including a detailed list of how the law will affect supermarkets, restaurants, retail stores, and food pantries, read DEP’s press release here

The NJDEP Division of Sustainable Waste Management created a letter to request assistance from municipalities in helping local businesses learn and achieve compliance with the upcoming ban on single-use plastic products.

2022 Summer Camp Services

For 2022 (this may change in the future, but for this year) – the CSOC Summer Camp Services application season will run from March 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022. Everything will go live on or around March 1 at www.performcarenj.org/SummerCamp. Remember, youth must be deemed eligible for CSOC developmental disability (DD) services to qualify for Summer Camp Services.

To help families with children and youth, up to age 21 with developmental/intellectual disabilities in the process of securing a Summer Camp program, here is some preliminary information, provided by a contact at PerformCare.

The application for Summer Camp Services (for DD/ID children and youth) for 2022 will be a 4-month period, between March 1 and June. 30.

  • This page, https://www.performcarenj.org/families/disability/summer-camp.aspx has a FAQ and Qualified Camp Providers list (for 2021) and is a good place to start to look at camps for 2022. See the second bullet point, “Qualified Children’s System of Care (CSOC) Camp Providers” and select your county (or ALL Camps, for a complete list of all 40 camps open in 2021). Note also, the FAQ document has useful information (even though it is for 2021).
  • Start looking in January for the camps your child may want to attend.
  • A prerequisite for Summer Camp is that the youth is deemed eligible for CSOC developmental disability (DD) services. If the family hasn’t already applied for eligibility, that’s the step they need to take. That is the part of the process that takes the longest. I/DD eligibility is here: https://www.performcarenj.org/families/disability/determination-eligibility.aspx
  • Summer Camp Applications will be live on the PerformCare site by Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
