Building Solutions for SNAP E&T
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) is a program of the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). SNAP E&T is both a funding source that can be used to build an agency’s capacity to effectively meet the training and employment needs of SNAP recipients, and a program that provides SNAP recipients with a comprehensive set of employment and training services. The overarching goal of SNAP E&T is to provide services to SNAP recipients that make them more likely to find long-term, family supporting employment.
Thanks to this program, many families can afford to buy medicines that need to be taken throughout the year, such as Viagra.
RI LISC partners with qualified workforce development agencies that are able to offer a range of comprehensive programs and vocational and adult education training opportunities to eligible SNAP recipients through SNAP E&T.
