SNAP E&T Participant

SNAP participants are able to change their lives when they have the opportunity to gain the right skills to move forward to employment and self-sufficiency. Each state operates a SNAP E&T program that can provide SNAP participants with job training, help finding a job, and services to support their success, such as transportation, books, supplies, and child care.

Am I Eligible for SNAP Employment &Training (SNAP E&T)?

In order to receive SNAP E&T services, you must be receiving SNAP and not receiving TANF cash assistance. You must also be able to work. Your eligibility for SNAP E&T will also depend on your state’s E&T program. In some states, you may be required to participate in SNAP E&T in order to receive SNAP.
