Tomorrow, beginning at 1:00PM, the National Skills Coalition will host a webinar on the role of SNAP and employment training.
SNAP E&T can help low-income individuals access education and training, as well as critical supportive services that are often otherwise unavailable. On this webinar you'll learn from NSC and other experts how state and local communities can capitalize on this largely untapped resource and take advantage of new opportunities, like recently authorized pilot grants. You'll learn about what is allowed under SNAP E&T and how the program interacts with the larger SNAP nutrition program.
NSC and its partners are developing a comprehensive to help states better understand and implement successful SNAP Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) programs.
Panelists will include:
- Rachel Gragg, National Skills Coalition
- Ed Bolen, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
- Rick Krauss, Consultant, formerly with the Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges Laura Rowley, Seattle Jobs Initiative
- Dr. David Stout, State of South Carolina
