Welcome to all things SNAP E&T!

This SNAP E&T tools and resources page houses recorded webinars, a range of SNAP E&T tools, templates and best practices.  The resources are organized based on the four main components of SNAP E&T alignment: funding, services, organization capacity, and participants. If you are coming here from a SNAP E&T Cohort group, you can find recordings and slide decks from our trainings at the bottom of this page.

There are three main funding streams for SNAP E&T: 100% funds, 50/50 funds and ABAWD Pledge Funds. We will focus on the 50/50 funds in this resource

SNAP E&T third party providers providers can receive up to 50% cost reimbursement when using eligible non-federal funds to provide employment services to SNAP E&T participants. These funds cover administrative and direct program expenses as well as participant reimbursements/support services provided to participants. These 50/50 funds are not capped, meaning reimbursement potential is tied the number of eligible participants served and amount of non-federal funds used to deliver services, but is otherwise unlimited in potential. Examples of eligible non-federal funding includes: State, County or local funds, philanthropic funds,  and social enterprise revenues. Below are some resources related to SNAP E&T funding.

Within the 50/50 reimbursement model, you will incur costs while providing services to SNAP recipients, some of those costs will be reimbursable and some will not. See below for details and examples of allowable costs: 

Allowable administrative costs can include:

    • Staff salaries and benefits for time involved in SNAP E&T administration, support and operations
    • Office equipment, supplies, postage, and copying/printing costs
    • Lease or building rental costs
    • Travel expenses incurred to carry out SNAP E&T tasks and contract requirements

Allowable participant reimbursements / supportive services for participants that are reasonably necessary and directly related to participation in an E&T program can include:

    • dependent care
    • transportation
    • digital technology
    • books, supplies, clothing and uniforms
    • personal safety and hygiene items

Indirect costs that support allowable E&T activities are also reimbursable and include:

    • Staff that support general office administrative functions
    • Financial staff that handle all billing activities
    • General building maintenance and utility expenses

The resources below can be helpful to determine where your program has SNAP E&T alignment or where adjustments can be made

 

Does your organization have the infrastructure and staffing in place in order to fulfil the administrative and programmatic requirements for SNAP E&T? Assess general administrative processes to establish capability to track participation, services delivered, and verify SNAP E&T eligibility. Capacity indicators include:

  • A programmatic data tracking system that is already tracking participant activity and outcomes
  • A fiscal data tracking system that has the ability to track non-federal revenue and tie it to appropriate expenses
  • Adequate staffing who perform key roles (both on the services and administrative side)

Use the tools below to help determine administrative capacity.

Does your program currently serve people who meet the eligibility criteria for SNAP E&T participation? Are your services generally aligned to meet their needs and address their employment barriers?

Eligibility requirements for SNAP E&T enrollment are:

  • Participant is receiving SNAP benefits
  • Participant is not receiving TANF cash benefits
  • Participant is willing and able to work post program completion
