​​The SNAP Employment and Training Program (STEP) is the state's employment and training program for individuals and families receiving Supplemental Nutritional Assistance (SNAP).


The STEP program helps people who are receiving SNAP benefits get access to education and training at no cost. STEP services are available across the state, through a variety of community partners. To learn more about STEP in your community, contact your local ODHS Self-Sufficiency office and ask to speak with a SNAP Eligibility and Training (E&T) Navigator.

SNAP E&T Navigators provide person-centered help, based on the needs and strengths of individuals and families. For the STEP program, E&T Navigators collaborate and partner with the community to find solutions.  


SNAP families or individuals who have questions about the STEP program and available services should contact their local ODHS Self-Sufficiency office and ask to speak with a SNAP E&T Navigator.​
