WIOA provides new opportunities for the workforce system and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) to work together. The WIOA state planning process provides an opportunity for states to align SNAP E&T with the broader workforce system to help SNAP participants build their skills and find family-supporting jobs. Aligned by Design: WIOA & SNAP E&T features national and local experts to address key principles for education and training investments to produce better outcomes for individuals and local economies.
