WAC 388-444-0015 How can the Basic Food Employment and Training (BF E&T) program help me find work?

The Basic Food Employment and Training (BF E&T) program is the name for Washington’s voluntary Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) employment and training program.  


1)    If you receive federally-funded Basic Food benefits, you may choose to receive services through the BF E&T program in one or more of the following activities, if we currently provide the service in the county where you live:


a.    Job Search;


b.    Paid or unpaid work;


c.    Training or work experience;


d.    General Education Development (GED) classes; or


e.    English as a second language (ESL) classes.


2)    If you are eligible to participate in a BF E&T activity, there is no limit to the number of hours you can participate.


3)    If you receive benefits under the state-funded Food Assistance Program (FAP), you are not eligible to participate in BF E&T.
