ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

The county must arrange for or provide people required to participate in MFIP Employment Services (MFIP-ES) with child care services, transportation, and other necessary family services as authorized by the Employment Plan. People who do not have child care or transportation may claim good cause for not participating in MFIP-ES.


The county agency must, within the limit of available funds, arrange for or provide needed support services to clients participating in SNAP E&T. Support services are those services necessary to enable clients to participate in the program including, but not limited to:

Public transportation expenses, unless free transportation is available. This includes transportation to enable SNAP E&T participants to take part in literacy training.

Clothing suitable for job interviews.

Tools, equipment, and supplies.


For more information, see the SNAP E&T Manual 5.23 (Support Services Allowed) and the USDA SNAP E&T Employment and Training Toolkit.

Do not require clients to participate, and do not sanction clients for failure to cooperate, if needed support services or funds to pay for them are unavailable or if the client would have to incur these expenses out-of-pocket without being repaid.


No provisions.
