Event Description

The Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS), a statewide non-profit organization, invites you to attend a free upcoming webinar on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)-formerly known as Food Stamps. We will be inviting representatives from the USDA’s regional office, the Connecticut Department of Social Services, and other national organizations to participate as well. This will be a terrific opportunity to learn about SNAP and how your organization or business can get more involved in helping eligible people access this important program.

Connecticut, like the rest of the country, is seeing a huge increase in need as a result of the economic downturn. Calls to our office have been coming in from all corners of the state, and from many people who have never had to seek assistance before. It is critical that we all expand our reach and get the word out to as many eligible people as we can. This webinar will help us to reach further than we can from our cars and offices.

Who should attend?
Anyone who works with lower income clients or customers will benefit from learning how to help increase awareness of SNAP. This includes: municipal social service employees, the faith community, food pantry operators, housing authority representatives, business leaders, caseworkers, outreach workers, and educators, to name a few.

Why should you attend?
Did you know that only about 65% of eligible Connecticut residents are currently participating in SNAP? That means that tens of thousands of lower income people in our state are not taking advantage of this valuable nutrition program. The average Connecticut SNAP recipient currently receives over $100 per month in benefits, which provides a tremendous increase in spending power. This workshop will help you to think about new ways to reach clients and customers to make sure that they are receiving all of the benefits that they qualify for.

Please register as soon as possible. Space is somewhat limited, and we expect a great crowd.
