About the Council
The Human Services Advisory Council (HSAC) is appointed by the County Board of Chosen Freeholders and advises the Freeholders regarding human service needs within the county. The Human Services Advisory Council is composed of providers, interested citizens, and consumers of all types of human services.

Membership is prescribed by NJAC 10:2-1.3, which is the State of New Jersey regulations for county HSACs. The Cape May County HSAC is comprised of 19 voting members with non-voting representation from county and state representatives as needed. Each county in New Jersey has a HSAC. The Cape May County HSAC was established in 1983 and is responsible for:
  • Allocating funding based on the planning results
  • Implementing programs to meet the identified needs
  • Monitoring of programs to ensure contract compliance and quality service provision
  • Planning for human services for all county residents
