The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training is a mandatory program designed to help food assistance recipients find a job and move toward self-sufficiency.
Effective January 1, Florida's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), often referred to as Food Stamps, requires that all Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDS), age 18-49, must participate in the SNAP Employment & Training (E&T) program.
The goal of the SNAP E&T program is to help unemployed recipients of food assistance benefits find work. In Citrus, Levy and Marion counties, CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion oversees the E&T program in partnership with Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO).
IMPORTANT: In order to maintain eligibility for food-assistance benefits, ABAWDS must complete 80 hours of work-related activity each month.
