SNAP CAN Referral Screening
 
(01/01/22 - 12/31/22)
All NA participants are screened to determine whether a referral to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Career Advancement Network (SNAP CAN) is made.
 
To determine when a referral to SNAP CAN is appropriate, complete all of the following:
 
Determine which participants are included in the NA benefit (coded IN on SEPA).
Use the NA Work Registration and SNAP CAN Script (FAA-1786A) to explain the assistance and services offered with SNAP CAN.
Determine whether a participant in the budgetary unit is appropriate to refer to SNAP CAN based on the participant’s statement to the following questions:
Would any of the assistance offered by SNAP CAN help reduce any barriers you have to participating in the program or gaining employment?
Would any of the services offered by SNAP CAN meet your needs now, or in the future?
 
When a participant in the budgetary unit answers no to either question, they are not appropriate to refer to SNAP CAN. Advise the participant they are not being referred to SNAP CAN and complete all of the following:
 
Key N in the REF Y/N field on WORW for the participant.
Provide the participant with the phone number and URL information to contact [email protected] for more information on available work programs.
 
When a participant in the budgetary unit answers yes to both questions and is age 16 or older, they are appropriate to refer to SNAP CAN. (See Referrals to SNAP CAN for more information.)
 
 
NOTE When the participant is in one of the following programs: CA Jobs, Tribal Native Employment Works (NEW), Tribal TANF Employment Program, or the Refugee Resettlement, they are not referred to SNAP CAN.
