Abstract

This is an extension, without change, of a currently approved collection. In accordance with Section 16(h)(5) of the Food and Nutrition Act (FNA), as amended by section 4022 of the Agriculture Act of 2014, and 7 CFR 273.7(c)(17) the Department requires that state agencies report outcome data for the Supplemental Nutrition Employment Program (SNAP) Employment and Training (E&T) programs. In order for FNS to monitor the effectiveness of E&T programs state agencies are required to report outcome data on five separate reporting measures:

  1. The number and percentage of E&T participants who retain employment 2 quarters and 4 quarters after completing E&T;
  2. The median wages for participants with earnings 2 quarters after completion of E&T;
  3. The number and percentage of participants that completed a training, education, work experience or on-the-job training component;
  4. Certain unique characteristics of SNAP E&T participants; and
  5. Additional reporting requirements for state agencies that pledge to serve all at-risk Able-bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDs).

State agencies are also required to identify appropriate reporting measures for each proposed component that serves a threshold number of participants of at least 100 a year. State agencies identify the reporting measures for these components in state agencies' E&T plans and report the outcome data to FNS through state agencies' annual reports. State agencies are required to report outcome data annually.
