Employment Opportunities and Assistance
The first step is to determine your eligibility by answering the questionnaires right in the web. (See Reference section for links).The Results section will produce the government program that would suit you best. For example, the following data was keyed-in:
Number of persons living in the household: Five (5); Annual realizable income: $22,000 or roughly $12.00 per day, per person in food, clothing, shelter and basic utilities.
The mock eligibility test produced this result: Job Opportunities for Low-Income Individuals (JOLI), for which a brief description of the program is detailed below:
