The Basic Food Employment and Training Program assists recipients of federal Basic Food Assistance by providing funding for career training, GED, high school completion, or English as a Second Language classes to increase their opportunities for employment.

If you qualify, you may receive funding for tuition, textbooks, and a parking permit or ORCA transit pass if funding is available. 


You may be eligible for the Basic Food Employment and Training program if you are receiving federal Basic Food Assistance from DSHS and not receiving TANF cash assistance. Workforce Education will need to obtain DSHS approval before funding can be awarded.

Take the Start Next Quarter survey to find out if you pre-qualify for the Basic Food Employment and Training program and the other Workforce Education tuition assistance programs.
