About your actual budget

About your Actual Budget

Your Budget for services is made up of 2 parts:

A budget is how much money you have and how you plan to spend the money.

  • Where you live

  • What you do during the day.

  • Other services like therapies, career planning, employment specialist services, and assistive technology are added on to your base budget if you need them.
