What is the SNAP Works Program?
Georgia’s Food Stamp & Training Program
- The food stamp program mandates that all nonexempt recipients register for work. The SNAP Works Program is designed to provide able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) with a way to meet their SNAP work requirements.
- SNAP Works provides participants with opportunities to gain skills, training or experience that will improve their employment prospects and reduce their reliance on food stamp (SNAP) assistance.

- Between 18-49 years of age;
- Mentally and physically able to work;
