Gov. Ricketts, State Agencies Applaud Launch of SNAP Reemployment Program in Norfolk

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the Nebraska Department of Labor (DOL) applauded the expansion of a key state workforce program to Norfolk.  Last year, the State of Nebraska launched an initiative designed to help participants in Nebraska’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, gain greater financial independence by connecting them to better-paying jobs.  The pilot has seen success since it launched in Grand Island in 2016.  The program is set to expand to Norfolk, several months ahead of schedule, on February 1, 2018.
