I am with Joe. As far as I understand there would only be a dollar amount given for allotment other than services to be provided as part of  if an IPE (individual plan for employment ) if this plan has been developed then services have been outlined and those services must be provided. The only way a home phone line would be provided is if it is a direct need to secure employment, such as a home based business. 

Have you developed an IPE with Julie Clark?  What you are saying just does not make sense
