An Untapped Resource: Understanding SNAP E&T
The SNAP Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) program can be an important part of a state’s workforce development system, helping low-income individuals access education and training, as well as critical supportive services, that are often otherwise difficult to obtain. But in order to capitalize on the potential of this program, workforce stakeholders need to better understand both what is allowed under SNAP E&T and how the program interacts with the larger SNAP nutrition program.
On this webinar, National Skills Coalition and other SNAP E&T experts discuss the potential of SNAP E&T and how state and local communities can best capitalize on this largely untapped resource.
