Arizona Selected to Participate in Employment and Training Project
“There is a strong sense of pride in employment and striving to be the best for yourself and your family,” said Director Timothy Jeffries. “By equipping individuals with job skills, we are moving them that much closer to sustainability to eliminate the need for assistance. The Arizona Department of Economic was chosen because of its well-established, job-driven workforce development programs to help those in need.”
“Our participation in SNAP to Skills reflects our commitment to supporting SNAP recipients, including Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWD), to achieve self-sufficiency,” said Molly Bright, Deputy Assistant Director for the Division of Employment and Rehabilitation Services.
SNAP to Skills will work with states to identify areas for growth in their E&T programs, including the opportunity to expand their program with federal support, which will match their funding on a 50-50 basis.
