SNAP E&T Resources

September 02, 2014

The 2014 Farm Bill authorized the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Services to grant $200 million for the creation and evaluation of three-year pilot projects testing innovative Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) strategies in up to 10 states. Funding for the SNAP E&T programs can be utilized to provide education, employment and training services to SNAP recipients. 

USDA Food and Nutrition Services released the Request for Application for SNAP E&T pilots on August 25, 2014. The application can be found here
