Short Description
The Department may contract with private sector businesses, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, community and faith-based organizations and governmental agencies to provide intensive education, job skills training, and/or pre-employment services and unsubsidized job placement services to ABAWDs who receive non-assistance SNAP benefits. Special populations may be targeted for services. Participants may be assigned to a Work Experience, Vocational Training, or Basic Education or to a combination of these activities. The Providers recruit, orient, assess, and refer eligible individuals and recruit employers who provide suitable work sites and unsubsidized employment opportunities for participants. Providers are also responsible for providing case management to participants to reduce barriers to employment and maximize self-sufficiency. The Department's Family Community Resource Centers (FCRCs) have the opportunity to refer individuals to Job Placement with Retention providers.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) Program is a self-support program to help customers acquire work skills and find employment. The program also helps customers with work-related expenses for the first 30 days of a job.

Participation in SNAP E&T enables participants to gain work skills and experience, meet the federal work requirement, and become self-sufficient. Some participants are hard to serve individuals with limited work histories and experience. Some may need additional education and training to find and keep a job or have other barriers to employment. Individuals will participate in specific programs based upon their individual assessments, identifying strengths and areas for development. All individuals who participate in the SNAP E&T program must be assigned to the required number of participation hours, based upon the SNAP allotment and/or the component activity into which they are placed.

Providers must engage participants for 80 hours per month in one or a combination of activities for which they do not receive cash assistance. Approved activities include:

• Basic Education

• Vocational Training

• Work Experience

• Job Search

• Job Readiness
