Winona Post: MSC SE partners with SNAP

September 23, 2020

Minnesota State College Southeast is now one of only a handful of organizations in Southeast Minnesota which partners with SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) to offer education and training services. The college signed a SNAP E&T partnership agreement on September 17, 2020.

SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of needy families so they can purchase healthy food and move toward self-sufficiency. Minnesota State College Southeast has been awarded a grant for up to $572,000, which will provide reimbursement for 50 percent of the college’s expenses in providing support services to students who are receiving SNAP benefits.

Through the grant, the college will provide education and training to recipients of SNAP dollars so they will be better prepared to find regular employment that leads to economic independence. The college will help students identify whether they are eligible for SNAP, and if so, help them apply and get enrolled in the program.
