The following outlines the process in which clients are referred to the OK SNAP Works program:
During the interview, or renewal, the topic of OK SNAP Works could be covered when addressing work registration and ABAWD status. If a client does not meet work registration or ABAWD exemptions; the referral to OK SNAP Works can fulfill the work requirement.
Make sure of the following:
- The ABAWD has an address, phone number, or email in which the providers can contact the client to set up orientation;
- The ABAWD lives within a reasonable travel distance;
- The ABAWD wants to participate and has the ability to do so
NOTE: The providers are located in Oklahoma, Tulsa, Pittsburg, Muskogee, Okmulgee, McIntosh, and Haskell counties, but individuals in surrounding counties can participate if they have transportation. Please determine if a provider will be a good option for travel for a client prior to referring them. The client will need to be able to get to and from a provider each day. Transportation assistance is provided, but there will be maximum amounts. The maximum amount may not cover all transportation costs. Some providers also offer online options.

OK SNAP Works Supports
While clients participate in OK SNAP Works they will be eligible for several supports. These supports include child care while they participate in activities. OK SNAP Works can help clients buy clothing for interviews, clothing or uniforms required for their jobs. The program also pays for tools or personal safety items needed to perform some jobs. For clients who have issues with transportation, gas cards and bus passes can be given.
If a client is in need of child care services while they participate in OK SNAP Works they must complete the child care application process. Workers would follow their normal child care application process with only a few extra steps. A worker should ensure the client completes a PS-1 and an FSS-1B, or completes an application through OKDHSLive online, and has supplied a provider contract number. You will need to complete and document the interview with the client in case notes and image all verification received. Once all this information has been completed, an email can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. OK SNAP Works staff will then handle the processing of the application.
There may be situations where additional information or support is required. Contact OK SNAP Works staff for information at email@example.com.
