The five matrices in this volume are designed to assist states in coordinating their Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) programs. The matrices, each organized around a theme, summarize key elements of a variety of federal programs. Matrix A features the main programs of human services, labor, and education agencies that are most critical to the JOBS program. Matrices B and C supplement Matrix A by displaying additional human services, labor, and education programs. Child care programs are covered in Matrix D. The set concludes with Matrix E, which profiles housing programs, and Matrix F, which describes tax credits. Each page of the matrices spans two pages. The key elements summarized include the following: authorization, purpose, administrative auspices, funding levels, allocation basis, match requirements, fiscal year, program year, planning cycle, nature of state plan, mandate for substate planning, rules/regulations and policies, eligibility, reporting requirements, performance indicators, coordination requirements, and other. A glossary of acronyms used in the matrices completes the document. (YLB)
