FNS is committed to advancing equity and improving access to SNAP E&T nationwide and there are exciting efforts to advance equity happening at the state and provider levels. In this session, you’ll hear from two SNAP E&T providers in Illinois—Jane Addams Resource Corporation and Revolution Workshop—that are implementing ongoing strategies to advance racial, gender, and LGBTQ+ equity within their agencies and within the local manufacturing and construction industries. In addition, the Minnesota Department of Human Services will share exciting updates about their USDA-funded Data and Technical Assistance (DATA) grant. This project, which involves E&T provider engagement, seeks to answer key questions about the quality and equity of its E&T program to make data-driven improvements.
