  • In order to ensure consistent comparisons over time, this funding chart may include line-items from earlier years that are no longer funded (and that therefore do not otherwise appear in this Jobs & Workforce Budget.)
  • This chart includes funding that flows through the state budget. Federal funding that goes directly to programs in Massachusetts is not reflected.
