The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) program promotes long-term self-sufficiency by preparing SNAP recipients for employment through work-related education and training activities, thereby decreasing dependency on assistance programs. For additional information on this program, please contact Sandi Moore at 304-253-7525. or click here.

Services are available to SNAP Recipients referred by the Department of Health and Human Resources which manages the referral functions for the SNAP ET Program.

SNAP Employment and Training was created in 1985 to help families exit SNAP by becoming Self Sufficient through work.

The goal of SNAP E & T is to assist SNAP recipients in obtaining employment. All unemployed adults from age 16 up to age 59, not caring for a child under 6, unless otherwise exempt, can be Employment & Training (E & T) Participants.

SNAP recipients who meet federally established exemption criteria are not required to participate in SNAP E&T, but may voluntarily participate as funding permits.
