  • Educational assistance
  • Health care services
  • Daily living services
  • Personal financial planning service
  • Transportation services
  • Income support services
  • Fiduciary and representative payee services
  • Legal services
  • Child care services
  • Housing counseling services
  • Other supportive services, including third party payments to landlords, utility companies, moving companies, and eligible child care providers
