What the New Fiscal Intermediary Means for Individuals/Families The Department of Human Services (DHS) recently announced the selection of Public Partnerships, LLC (PPL) as the new Fiscal Intermediary (FI) for the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), Division of Disability Services (DDS), and Division of Aging Services (DoAS). This means that the current FI for DDD will shift from Easter Seals to PPL. Will PPL function the same way as Easter Seals in terms of my Self-Directed Employee? No. Easter Seals functioned in an Agency with Choice (AwC) service delivery model. With the transition to PPL, New Jersey is also shifting to a Fiscal/Employer Agent (F/EA) service delivery model.
