DTA is offering FREE (VIRTUAL) SNAP TRAINING for COA’s, COA Board members, Senior Work Off participants, and Volunteers

Please join us for a training and overview of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with a special emphasis on working with older adults.  The application process, financial eligibility, how you can assist clients with maximizing their benefits, HIP and the Standard Medical Deduction and more will be covered.

DTA, at the request of MCOA, has offered to provide this detailed training for the COA network, including COA Board members, and volunteers that may, and can, be utilized by your COA to help expand your capacity to reach those who could benefit from SNAP and related benefits.  With the increases in food prices and the increases in utilities this is a critical time to help create more economic stability for older adults in MA. Please share the registration link to those in your community that support your efforts.

If you have any questions about this training prior to November 16, please reach out to Susan Carp, susanc@mcoaonline.com.
