What Is SNAP?

SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of families so they can purchase healthy food and move towards self-sufficiency.

What is the SNAP Employment and Training Program?

SNAP E&T is a work program designed to help SNAP recipients gain skills that will help increase self-sufficiency.

If you are receiving SNAP in Connecticut and not receiving money from the Temporary Family Assistance (TFA) program, you may be eligible to participate in SNAP E&T.  E&T is a skills-based program that provides short- term vocational programs at community colleges and community-based organizations.

Scholarships for SNAP recipients

QVCC is pleased to offer SNAP recipients access to federally-funded scholarships, which are administered through the state’s Department of Social Services (DSS), to attend one of these career training programs.
