(01/01/21 – 12/31/21)
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Employment and Training (SNA E&T) program is a work program through DERS designed to assist NA participants with the following:
 
Promote employment through job search and job readiness.
Provide the training or education necessary to obtain employment and decrease NA dependency.
 
The SNA E&T program provides supervised job search and job placement assistance to voluntary NA E&T participants.
 
Staff must screen each NA participant for NA work requirement exemptions when any of the following occurs:
 
Initial interview
Renewal interview
Change report
 
When a participant meets one of the NA work requirement exemptions, key the exemption code in the PAR/EXM field on WORW.
 
For non-exempt participants key the RR referral code in the PAR/EXM field on WORW. Then AZTECS sends a referral file to the SNA E&T program for the participant. The referral provides information to SNA E&T to help voluntary participants.
 
All eligible exempt or non-exempt NA participants may choose to participate voluntarily in the SNA E&T program. At the interview, ask the participant who in the budgetary unit would like to voluntarily participate in the SNA E&T program.
 
For all eligible exempt or non-exempt NA participants, who want to voluntary participate, key the Y indicator in the VOL field on WORW.
 
Inform the participant of the following:
 
They can expect to receive outreach material for job fairs, and employment resources from the SNA E&T program
Participation with SNA E&T begins once NA benefits are approved
