SNAP E&T Funding

Clark State offers funding for students who are SNAP E&T participants. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Employment and Training (E&T) program is intended to assist eligible SNAP recipients to gain skills, training, work, or experience that will increase self-sufficiency.

To be eligible, students must reside in Champaign, Clark, Greene, Logan or Montgomery counties and be enrolled in a degree or certificate that aligns with an in-demand occupation as identified by OhioMeansJobs.

Eligible Expenses May Include:

  • Automobile Repairs
  • Books/Course Materials

  • Gasoline
  • Transportation (public transportation fares)
