The Basic Food, Employment and Training program (BF E&T) provides access and services to food stamp recipients in Washington State. Services include job search and job search training, education and skills training, and support services to Basic Food recipients not participating in the state’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.
The BF E&T program, offered through the Department of Agriculture, is a source of funds for state and local agencies. Customarily, states administer the process through a designated BF E&T administrative agency. In our state, the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) is the designated agency. All 34 community and technical colleges are participating in the BF E&T program in Washington state.
