Seattle Jobs Initiative: The SNAP E&T Advocates Guide

The SNAP E&T Advocates Guide (Guide) was produced by Seattle Jobs Initiative (SJI) with support from The Annie E. Casey Foundation. The Guide is a playbook for advocates that seeks to provide them insight and ideas for their efforts to move States to take steps to develop and expand skills-based Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) in their States that effectively helps SNAP participants advance to self-sufficiency.
The Guide includes some general advocacy strategies as well as practical information on some of the common roadblocks that may be preventing States from moving forward with building quality SNAP E&T programs. It also includes key messaging on SNAP E&T that may be effective in getting State SNAP agencies to act to expand their programs, and/or in building champions for SNAP E&T who can move States to act.
