On June 27, FNS posted a Request for Applications (RFA) for the SNAP E&T Data and Technical Assistance (DATA) Grants. The purpose of these grants is to support the development of State agencies’ SNAP E&T data collection and reporting systems that are necessary to meet the reporting requirements set forth in the SNAP Employment and Training Program Monitoring, Oversight & Reporting Measures interim final rule, published on March 24, 2016. The SNAP E&T DATA grants are intended to support the full range of needs States may have related to the development, collection, reporting, analysis and use of SNAP E&T participant outcome data. 

DATA Grants were awarded on October 3 to eight States. The grant summaries are available here, and more information about the DATA Grants is available on the FNS website here
