As part of the Department of Transitional Assistance’s (DTA) efforts to engage the community, our SNAP outreach unit added the role of a Community Liaison in each local Transitional Assistance office.
About SNAP Community Liaisons
Who are SNAP community liaisons?
In each Transitional Assistance office, there is a SNAP Community Liaison. SNAP Community Liaisons are SNAP staff who have volunteered to work with outreach partners to support their work with SNAP clients in the community.
SNAP Community Liaisons:
- Support clients, SNAP outreach partners and local office staff
- Connect with community organizations, partners and advocates
- Assist our Ombudsman’s unit and SNAP nutrition education liaisons
- Attend local community events
- Promote DTA initiatives
Community Liaisons helps us build trust with our clients and partners by providing another avenue for help.
