(1) Actual reasonable expenses in moving himself, his family, business, farm operation, or other personal property;
(2) Actual direct losses of tangible personal property as a result of moving or discontinuing a business or farm operation, but not to exceed an amount equal to the reasonable expenses that would have been required to relocate such property, as determined by the agency;
(3) Actual reasonable expenses in searching for a replacement business or farm; and
(4) Actual reasonable expenses necessary to reestablish a displaced farm, nonprofit organization, or small business at its new site, in an amount to be determined according to criteria and limits as established by the commissioner in accordance with federal standards.
b. Any displaced person eligible for payments under subsection a. of this section who is displaced from a dwelling and who elects to accept the payments authorized by this subsection in lieu of payments authorized by subsection a. of this section may receive an expense and dislocation allowance, which shall be determined according to a schedule established by the commissioner.
c. Any displaced person eligible for payments under subsection a. of this section who is displaced from his place of business or farm operation and who is eligible under criteria established by the commissioner may elect to accept a payment authorized by this subsection in lieu of the payment authorized by subsection a. of this section. Such payment shall consist of a fixed payment in an amount to be determined according to criteria and limits established by the commissioner.
