When you applied to accept SNAP benefits, you agreed to fulfill certain Training Expectations. Here you can find resources that will help you to fulfill those expectations.
SNAP regulations can be found at Title 7; Subtitle B; Chapter II; Subchapter C – Food Stamp and Food Distribution Program of the Code of Federal Regulations.
