DTA SNAP Training Event in Framingham/Metro West

DTA and the MetroWest Community Provider Forum have organized another event for February 28th (this is identical to the Central Mass provider event happening today in Worcester).  Below is the announcement and RSVP information. DTA has asked me to share this broadly with Coalition members who service clients in the MetroWest area.

NOTE:  The next regularly scheduled Food SNAP Coalition meeting is also Tuesday, Feb 28th, from 10 - 12AM in Boston.  An agenda and more information will follow.

Dear Friends,

The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) understands that its clients are best served through working in collaboration with the experts in the community.  By sharing resources and ideas, we can better meet the health, human services, housing, employment, and educational needs of our mutual population.  The Department would like the opportunity to update you on innovative ways to interact with DTA and improve client access to services.  To that end, DTA and SMOC are excited to invite you to the:
