tickets for only $3.00. These tickets may then be used in lieu of cash on any participating public transportation providers
such as taxis, buses, and trains. Recipients of Medicaid and Handicapped Childrens Services may request reimbursement
for the cost of transportation associated with receiving medical services. Payments are made to the client or the transportation
provider and can include meals, lodging and turnpike tolls when required.

the cost of home heating. Cash payments are made to households or to utility companies on their behalf. A crisis component
is available for households without resources facing terminations or being without bulk fuel. Eligibility for both program
components is based on a combination of factors, including income, type of heating payment, and total heating costs.
