SNAP E&T is an Employment and Training program offered by the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) available in all 120 counties. SNAP is the nutrition assistance program formerly known as food stamps.
All SNAP recipients age 16 to 60 are eligible to participate.
SNAP E&T may be for you:
If you need help meeting a SNAP work requirement
If you want to get your GED or take college courses
If you want training in a new field or trade such as welding or plumbing
If you want budgeting and financial training
If you're having a hard time finding a job because of barriers in your past
If you want to find a job and don't know where to start
If you want advice on your current job or career
SNAP recipients who participate in SNAP E&T work one on one with a coach to discuss options and work toward personal goals. Assistance up to $25 per month may be available to help get to appointments, classes or work. You also may qualify for child care assistance.
