U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service
The SSRC collaborated with Marcie Foster at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service on The Connection Between SNAP and Work.
During The Connection Between SNAP and Work, attendees learned not only about the role of Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program's (SNAP) in promoting economic security and job development opportunities for low-income households, but also the ways in which the SNAP Employment and Training (E&T) program supports these efforts. Speakers from the United States Department of Agriculture, Seattle Jobs Initiative, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and the University of Baltimore outlined the key factors that impact participants' work propensity, job tenure, and earnings, and described their experiences implementing, supporting, and evaluating programs that connect SNAP participants to employment. Mr. Ed Bolen, Ms. Marcie Foster, Ms. Susan O’Callaghan and Dr. Ting Zhang co-presented on the subject. Mr. Patrick Heiman moderated the discussion. This webinar was held in January 2016.
