Prior knowledge of the SNAP program is preferred but trainings will be provided for those interested in learning about the purpose of the SNAP program, all aspects of the enrollment process, cultural misconceptions of the program, and how to resolve common issues that clients face in obtaining or maintaining their benefits.
