Projects

SNAP to Skills

Project Overview

State agencies that manage the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are required to operate a SNAP Employment and Training (E&T) program to help participants gain skills, education, training, work, and experience that lead to good, stable jobs and support local workforce needs. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Agriculture launched its SNAP to Skills Project to provide technical assistance to dozens of states, bringing new tools and resources to help them build highly effective employer-driven SNAP E&T programs.

For this project, Insight will provide technical assistance to states to support them in their efforts to improve and expand their SNAP E&T programs. Most notably, we will—

  • Create and disseminate best practices resources to all SNAP state agencies and their partners in the form of written materials and virtual learning opportunities.
  • Operate a SNAP E&T State Institute for up to 20 States. The institute will include a 2-day in-person training on a specific topic related to planning, developing, and operating an effective and high-quality SNAP E&T program.
