WEBINAR: SNAP E&T and Community College Partnerships

Join USDA for a webinar on April 12th on effective Community College/SNAP Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) Partnerships. We'll be joined by two community colleges who are working with SNAP E&T as a way to provide employer-driven education and training to SNAP participants.

SNAP Employment and Training is a workforce development program for SNAP participants administered by States. It is a highly flexible program that can be designed to meet the needs of the State, employers, and participants alike.
