FoodShare Employment and Training (FSET)

The Federal Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program (SNAP) requires States to design and operate an employment and training program for adults receiving FoodShare (FS) benefits. In Wisconsin , this program is called the FoodShare Employment & Training Program, otherwise known as FSET. 

Program participation became voluntary when administration was transferred from the Department of Children and Family to the Department of Health Services. FSET participation or nonparticipation has no impact on FS benefits.  

The purpose of FSET is to provide FS members free assistance and support needed to obtain competitive employment or enhance opportunities for career advancement. Services are designed to use the strengths, needs and preferences of the job seeker that will result in successful employment and increased earning potential. Persons interested in receiving FSET services should contact their local FS worker to ask what services are offered in their area.
