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.
