REDF along with our partners–Seattle Jobs Initiative (SJI) and Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO)–will be creating a new innovative program dedicated to growing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) third-party partners by integrating SNAP E&T and employment social enterprises (ESEs). The program will enhance each organization’s capacity to provide SNAP E&T technical assistance to ESEs throughout the country. This SNAP partnership team will provide technical assistance to build capacity of ESEs within REDF’s broad network in order to: maximize high-quality services; and increase the number of SNAP E&T participants, and SNAP E&T partnerships.
