Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's
Employment & Training Program 


The SNAP Employment & Training Program is working to connect low-income Montanans with job training programs so they can qualify for better-paying jobs.


This valuable training is at no-cost to the participants who qualify.


If you know someone who receives or may be eligible for SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps), have them call their Office of Public Assistance Case Worker and request a referral for the E&T Program that our office serves in Lincoln and Flathead counties.
