If you are an able-bodied adult without a dependent who is physically and mentally able to work, and you do not have any of the exemptions listed above, you will be required to participate in the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Employment and Training Program (SNAP E&T), operated by Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDB) across the state of Florida called CareerSource.

Federal law requires certain people who receive food assistance to participate in work activities. The SNAP E&T Program helps individuals who receive food assistance to register and participate in a work activity. If you start to receive food assistance and must participate in SNAP E&T activities, you will receive a letter from the Department of Economic Opportunity about the SNAP E&T Program. This letter will explain work activity requirements such as employment or participation in educational activities. Please make sure to follow the instructions in the letter or your food assistance may be terminated.
Able-bodied adults must work or participate in the SNAP E&T Program for at least 80 hours per month. Able-bodied adults who fail to participate in SNAP E&T can only receive food assistance for three months in a 36-month period. Able-bodied adults who have already received food assistance for three time-limited months may receive them again by meeting an exemption, working, or taking part in a work program for at least 80 or more hours separately or in combination in any month before applying for food assistance.
If you receive a letter from the SNAP E&T Program, call the phone number in the letter if you have any questions.
