Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Employment and Training Program (SNAP - E and T)
The goal of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) employment and training program is to help people prepare for and become employed. Participants receive services from an employment services provider in their area, as assigned by the county.
Able-bodied SNAP participants between age 18 and 50 who do not receive cash benefits from other public assistance programs may be required to participate in SNAP E and T services.
People excused from participating include those who:
Each participant will attend an orientation to learn more about the program services. Then they will complete an individual assessment and an employability plan.
If needed, help with transportation or other supportive services will be provided. If participants fail to comply with these program requirements, they are subject to sanctions and could temporarily or permanently lose food benefits.
People who apply for cash and food assistance may be enrolled in this program if they do not qualify for other cash assistance programs.
For more information, contact your local county human services office.
