The purpose of the Supplement Nutrition Assistance Employment and Training (SNAP E&T) services is to help NA participants gain:
 
Skills and find work.
Self-sufficiency to move forward.
Independence and reduce dependence on public supportive services
 
In Arizona, SNAP E&T services are made available through third-party partners referred to as SNAP Career Advancement Network (CAN) Providers, or the SNAP CAN Program.
 
SNAP E&T Program services are administered through the SNAP CAN Program within the Division of Employment and Rehabilitation Services (DERS), Workforce Development Administration (WDA).
 
The SNAP CAN Program is a community-based employment and training partnership. The Division of Employment and Rehabilitation Services (DERS) administers the SNAP CAN Program.
 
The SNAP CAN Program is a voluntary program for NA participants and includes the following employment and training services:
Supervised job search
Job readiness
Work Experience
Supportive services to enable individuals to achieve the program’s objective.
 
FAA Workers must screen each NA participant for NA work requirement exemptions when any of the following occurs:

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 SNAP E&T services.
 
All eligible exempt or non-exempt NA participants may choose to participate voluntarily in the SNAP CAN program. At the interview, ask the participant who in the budgetary unit would like to voluntarily participate in the SNAP CAN program.
