Employment and Training
The SNAP Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) Program helps SNAP participants gain skills, training, or work experience to increase their ability to obtain regular employment that leads to economic self-sufficiency. Additionally, the E&T program offers a way to allow SNAP recipients to meet SNAP work requirements.
The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) provides funding annually to States to operate the SNAP E&T program. States have considerable flexibility to determine which SNAP participants to serve, which specific services to offer, and their network of providers and partners.
The Office of Employment and Training (OET) administers the SNAP E&T program nationally and provides policy and guidance to State agencies on how to comply with federal regulations as well as improve employment outcomes for SNAP participants.
