      Amounts paid for utilities and services

    • C.

      Support of family housing owned by another service

    • D.

      Charges for initial utility connection of privately owned mobile homes

    Correct Answer
    A. Charges for mobile home space rental
    Explanation
    Expenses for mobile home space rental are not reimbursable for military family housing. This means that if military families choose to live in a mobile home and rent the space for it, they will not be able to receive reimbursement for this specific expense. The other options, such as amounts paid for utilities and services, support of family housing owned by another service, and charges for initial utility connection of privately owned mobile homes, may be eligible for reimbursement.
