About SCBSS

The Salem County Board of Social Services (SCBSS) was created to serve the citizens of Salem County. It was established under the authority of New Jersey Statutes Annotated (NJSA) 44.

The Board consists of seven (7) citizen members, two (2) Freeholder members and the County Adjuster.  The members are appointed by the Board of Chosen Freeholders.  Citizen members serve for a five (5) year term.  

In New Jersey, public assistance programs are federally funded, state supervised and county administered. Therefore, county boards of social services are true intergovernmental agencies accountable to all three levels of government. This is a demanding task given the varying focuses and mandates of the different government entities. 

The Salem County Board of Social Services administers Medicaid, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), General Assistance (GA), Food Stamps, Medical Transportation, Child Support and Emergency Assistance programs.  Services are offered in English and Spanish. 

For more information about these programs and to find out how to apply, click on the appropriate program tab on the left.
