Food Benefits


The SNAP Training and Employment Program (STEP) is the state's employment and training program for people 16 years and older who are receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. People who are receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits and who are eligible for the JOBS program are not eligible for STEP.


The STEP program can help support employment and training goals at no cost for people who enter the program.  Community Partners help people gain skills for the job they want. They may also help with things like transportation, work clothing, work tools, and so much more.


To learn more about STEP in your community, contact your local ODHS Self-Sufficiency office​ and ask for a referral to a SNAP Employment and Training (E&T) Navigator.
