  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Employment & Training Program

The state plan is available online at https://bit.ly/ADWS_WIOA, and a hard copy will be available at each of the Arkansas Workforce Centers and at Arkansas Rehabilitation Services offices. A copy in Braille is also available at 1 Commerce Way, Little Rock, AR 72202, Room 213. For access to the Braille copy of the plan, please contact Megan Lamb, Assistant Director at the Division of Services for the Blind in advance at 501-682-5730.
