Employment and Training Resources Available to States

The SNAP Employment and Training (E&T) program, administered by all 53 state agencies, helps participants gain the skills, training, or work experience they need to enter, reenter, or remain in the workforce. The program is flexible. State agencies can tailor services and supports to the needs of SNAP participants and the communities in which they live. State agencies can, and should partner with other state and federal workforce programs to offer a continuum of services that help low-income Americans work toward self-sufficiency.

SNAP - Implementing the Increased Allotments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) for Cases not Affected by a Mass Change

It has come to Food and Nutrition Service's attention that although States have incorporated the 13.6 percent increase to SNAP maximum allotments into their systems as a mass change effective April 1, 2009 there are some States where not every household will automatically receive the increase as part of their April allotment due to the limitations of certain State systems.
