SNAP E&T 50/50 funds are an underutilized resource for increasing workforce development capacity and strengthening community-based organizations. SNAP E&T, as an uncapped federal resource, should be a primary option for governments attempting to mitigate COVID-19 related funding losses. Participants will learn how San Diego County successfully scaled its E&T program, identified and engaged new partners, and increased SNAP E&T reimbursement. Participants will learn to develop a SNAP E&T vision; integrate SNAP E&T with existing workforce services; identify and evaluate potential partner agencies; create a reimbursement methodology that accurately calculates the reimbursement and maximizes return; and build strong and lasting partnerships.
