SNAP E&T is an Employment and Training program offered by the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS).

All SNAP recipients ages 16 through 59 are eligible to participate.
SNAP E&T may be for you:

  • If you need help meeting a SNAP work requirement
  • If you want to get your GED or take college courses
  • If you want training in a new field or trade such as welding or plumbing
  • If you want budgeting and financial training
  • If you're having a hard time finding a job because of barriers in your past
  • If you want to find a job and don't know where to start
  • If you want advice on your current job or career

SNAP recipients who participate in SNAP E&T work one-on-one with a SNAP E&T coach to discuss options and work toward personal goals.  Assistance up to $25 per month may be available to help get to appointments, classes or work.  You also may qualify for child care assistance.

Contact your local DCBS office or call toll free (855) 306-8959 to apply for SNAP, SNAP E&T or child care assistance.

When completing your SNAP application, ask about SNAP E&T.  If your SNAP application is approved and you sign up for SNAP E&T, you will receive a letter notifying you when to meet with your local SNAP E&T provider.
