Home-Based Businesses

No facility costs are allowed for home-based businesses unless the client can substantiate that the cost is essential to the operation of the business, (e.g., a separate telephone line for the business). Shelter costs (rent, mortgage, utilities, etc.) are not considered as essential to the operation of the business as the client would need to pay shelter costs whether or not they operated a business from their home.
