Check out the TRACS Resources and Links PDF handout for an overview of available resources to learn how to use TRACS. The following resources are designed to be training/job aids to assist state and federal users in collecting information as required for data entry in TRACS. The training materials contain essential information for the user to make full use of the TRACS system. 

TRACS Performance Matrix Toolbox (tools to build your objectives)

Matrix Version 21 - Last Updated 7/3/2024

The TRACS Performance Matrix lists the standardized strategies, objectives and activities that meet grant requirements. Applicants should refer to the Performance Matrix and related tools in order to determine what strategy-objective-activity combination(s) should be selected for their objectives and the reportable metrics that will be required during performance reporting. It is important to note that the matrix and related tools are updated periodically under the direction of the TRACS Working Group, so it is best to access them via the training portal when needed. Please ensure you have the latest version of the Matrix to reference and review the Matrix Revision Log to see the list of changes and revisions. Also see the TRACS Matrix Changes and Legacy Objectives Job Aid.
