DTA’s SNAP Employment and Training Program, now known as the SNAP Path to Work program, provides SNAP clients with the skills, training, experience, education and employment supports needed to find and keep good paying jobs.  
 
Components offered through the program include:
  • Education
  • Vocational Skills Training
  • Job Search/Readiness Training
  • Job Search
  • Community Service (ABAWDs only) 
 
Participation in the SNAP Path to Work Program is voluntary and accessible to all SNAP-only clients. It is important to note that the SNAP Path to Work Program is not limited to ABAWDs but that all SNAP-only clients must be offered the opportunity to participate on a voluntary basis.  There are no penalties for failing to participate in the program.
 
The purpose of this transmittal is to advise staff of the revisions to the SNAP Path to Work Online Guide pages. These pages were moved from the Work Requirements Book into a new SNAP Path to Work Program Book. 
 
Updates include instructions for the Google Translate, provider contact requests, and ABAWD volunteer search functionalities on the www.snappathtowork.org website.  The chart of services offered by SNAP Path to Work components was also updated.
