SNAP Works Program

Residents of Georgia who receive SNAP benefits and who are non-exempt must register for work through the SNAP Works program which is designed to provide able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) with a way to meet their SNAP work requirements. SNAP Works introduces opportunities to gain skills, training or experience that will improve employment prospects and reduce reliance on SNAP.

ABAWD SNAP recipients are:

  • Between 18 to 49 years of age;
  • Mentally and physically able to work;
  • Not receiving SNAP as the result of caring for a minor child;
  • Not pregnant;
  • Residing in a SNAP Works time-limited county.
