Board Responsibilities

The main purpose of the Board is to ensure the uniform and efficient administration of income maintenance and other programs mandated by law and provide social services that enhance the quality of life for eligible members of the community.

The Board meets monthly to certify assistance grants and other expenses. It has the authority to make its own decisions, set policy, and administer state and federal assistance programs in conformity with established regulations. The Salem County Board of Social Services is composed of ten members selected and appointed by the Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders under the authority of Title 44, New Jersey Revised Statutes.

Seven of the members hold office for overlapping five year terms; two Freeholder representatives are appointed each year. The County Adjuster is an ex-Officio member. The law specifies that two appointees must be women. Members serve without compensation.

The Agency Director is authorized by law to act as the Chief Executive and Approval Officer.
