New SNAP Requirements

Follow these guidelines to maintain food assistance eligibility.

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. (Read these Frequently Asked Questions for more information about SNAP and the ABAWD status).

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).

In order to maintain eligibility for food-assistance benefits, ABAWDS must complete 80 hours of work-related activity each month. 

If you are required to participate, you will receive a Notification of Mandatory Participation Letter from DEO. Once you have been referred to SNAP E&T, you must complete the following steps to maintain eligibility for food assistance.



After you have completed the online registration, you must attend an appointment at one of CareerSource CLM’s centers. During this appointment, you will:

  • Watch a compliance video.
  • Receive your first activity assignment.
  • Schedule a follow-up appointment with your Career Coach.
