SNAP Employment and Training

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Employment and Training Program (E&T) is administered at the federal level by the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service. In South Carolina, the SNAP E&T Program is also known as SNAP2WORK.

The SNAP E&T Program was created in 1987 to assist SNAP recipients who are able to work toward obtaining employment. The purpose of the E&T Program is to help individuals gain skills, training, work, or experience that will increase self-sufficiency.

South Carolina E&T Program Description

Services are available to SNAP recipients seeking assistance with employment related training and job search assistance. There is no minimum participation requirement for these individuals.

SNAP recipients who are between the ages of 18 – 52 who do not have dependents are identified as Able Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWDS). ABAWDS may also volunteer for the SNAP E&T Program in order to satisfy the work requirement for time-limited SNAP benefits.

The SNAP E&T Program activities include: Work Readiness Training, Education, Vocational Training, Work Experience, Workfare and Job Retention Services.

Services are provided by SCDSS Regional Employment and Training Coordinators as well as through partnerships with other state agencies, community-based organizations (CBOs) and other community partners. SNAP E&T also works with businesses that provide apprenticeships and on-the-job training opportunities.

Partnerships and collaborations include multiple technical colleges, state agencies such as South Carolina Department Of Employment and Workforce, SC Department of Education, and CBOs that offer employment and training services.

Interested organizations or businesses can send an email to SNAP2WORK@DSS.SC.GOV.
