Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education and Training Pilot (SNAP E&T)—Fresno


Updated December 2016

This benefits and work supports initiative of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is a pilot program to help SNAP recipients in Fresno County, California, build skills to keep gainful employment. Pilots give the USDA and participating states the opportunity to build on existing SNAP E&T programs and test new strategies to determine the most effective way to help SNAP recipients locate and keep employment that leads to self-sufficiency.

As one of 10 such pilots, the Fresno program incorporates elements of case management, the career pathways approach, work-based learning, public-private partnerships, and subsidized employment.

This initiative could benefit from connecting to Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Title I strategic employer engagement through industry sector partnerships with high-demand occupations. This could help SNAP E&T target specific industries with a skills shortage, engage employers based on occupational targets, and produce portable skills in participants.
