Who We Are

The American Association of SNAP Directors (AASD) was formed to strengthen the administration and management of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and contribute to the professional development of its members.

Our Purpose

AASD promotes the exchange of experience and knowledge among those agencies of federal, state, and local government administering SNAP by providing expert advice and consultation on SNAP and other income and nutrition assistance issues.

Leading Change: Ramping-Up Your State’s SNAP Employment & Training Program is a webinar that was originally presented by APHSA’s Center for Employment & Economic Well-Being in November 2017.

It also highlights how Wyoming recently expanded its SNAP E&T program for women pursuing nontraditional careers, through blended and braided funding, and strong partnerships.
