NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is well known for providing nutrition support for individuals and families with low incomes. The lesser-known SNAP Employment and Training Program (SNAP E&T) helps eligible participants develop skills to achieve economic mobility. SNAP E&T provides employability assessments, training, transportation and child care, all of which help participants attain and sustain employment. Learn about opportunities state legislatures have to boost economic recovery and decrease food insecurity by investing in their SNAP E&T program using funding from the American Rescue Plan Act and other sources.
