Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training
The goal of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training (SNAP E&T), historically and commonly known as the Food Stamp Program, is to help SNAP recipients in obtaining employment through participation in allowable job search, training, education, or workfare activities that promote self-sufficiency. The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) determines participant eligibility and refers those eligible participants to Workforce Solutions.
- Job Search,
- Vocational Training,
- Non-vocational Education,
- Work Experience,
- Workfare and
- Unsubsidized Employment.
Support services for transportation, dependent care expenses, and other expenses that are reasonable, necessary, and directly related to participation in SNAP activities are evaluated based on individual need. Payment for General Educational Development (GED) testing and certificates of high school equivalency is also available.
