The Workforce Data Quality Campaign, a project of the National Skills Coalition, issued this report, entitled “Stepping Up: State Developments in SNAP Employment and Training Data."  The report discusses state data results from food stamp recipients' participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) employment and training services.

Stepping Up Report

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides food stamps to more than 47 million of the poorest Americans each year, while the associated employment and training (E&T) program helps those receiving benefits to move into stable jobs.

This report explains state best practices for collecting, reporting, and linking SNAP E&T data to other information that can help identify successful pathways into sustainable employment. 

As states capitalize on increased attention and resources for SNAP E&T, the report provides ideas to enhance their program data and accountability.



The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides SNAP data tables on the public assistance recipients it serves.  This includes national program summaries through the last fiscal year.

See USDA's SNAP to Skills: SNAP E&T Data Capture, Measurement & Reporting guide.

USDA also makes available program data and research with data visualizations.
