The SNAP Training and Employment Program (STEP) provides coaching and other support to CCC students who:

  • Receive SNAP
  • Do not receive TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families)
  • Are currently enrolled at CCC, and

  • Help identifying classes and training programs to support your career goal
  • Referrals to other internal and external support resources
  • Assistance with gaining financial literacy skills

Additionally, STEP may be able to assist with:

  • Gas cards or bus pass to help you get to and from school
  • GED and/or ESOL course fees and testing fees

Depending on your needs and available funding, there might also be assistance with:
