    A growing number of States are realizing the potential of the SNAP Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) program to help meet the urgent need of their SNAP participants for higher skills and better jobs. While States can turn to proven strategies to jumpstart their programs, some may be understandably hesitant to do so without knowing more about the staffing and infrastructure required. States may be especially uncertain about what it takes to develop and support a more robust SNAP E&T program that expands the use of 50 percent reimbursement (50-50) funds through third-party partnerships.

    This brief seeks to reduce this uncertainty for States in two ways. First, it provides them with a detailed picture of what staffing functions and infrastructure may be required both to plan for and administer an expanded SNAP E&T program utilizing primarily 50-50 funds. What are the key tasks and roles and who will perform these? What systems need to be in place? Second, the brief will offer States some recommendations for identifying and accessing the resources they may need...

    This report provides an extensive overview of Washington’s Basic Food Employment & Training (BFET) program and, more broadly, of federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T).

    BFET is viewed as a national model for expanding SNAP E&T programs by building on the existing service delivery capacity of community colleges and community-based workforce training providers. This paper covers the history and development of the BFET program; the nuts and bolts of how the BFET program operates; how the BFET program is utilized by community colleges and community-based organizations; and a short overview of program outcomes. The paper summarizes the best practices that have emerged from BFET and offers recommendations to other states and localities in expanding SNAP E&T programs. (Author abstract)
