When to Prepare

At application, local workforce staff complete Part I after outreach to verify participation in the Employment and Training (E&T) program for SNAP.

At recertification, Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) staff provide the form to each non-exempt registrant in the household to verify participation with E&T or another employment program. The household must take the form to the local workforce board for verification and return the completed form to HHSC.


Give one copy to the E&T registrant. E&T staff complete and return the original if the registrant adequately participates. File one copy in the case record under Miscellaneous/Correspondence.
