This session is perfect for those becoming acquainted with Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) technology. The presentation will offer a brief history of EBT, describe differences between traditional SNAP/cash EBT and eWIC, and aim to demystify EBT and its functional components.
So, your EBT project is finally up and running; or your project has been running a long time and you are maybe new to the EBT Director position. What is the job? What can possibly go wrong?! What are the chores, functions, relationships, issues involved in the running of your SNAP or WIC EBT project? Hear from folks who are in your position – from WIC and SNAP - as well as a perspective from the contractor side. Hear their tales and advice. Join us for a moderated discussion. Come with your questions. Leave with a better sense of day to day responsibilities.
Building on Workshop 1 with the focus on WIC implementations, this workshop will discuss the prism of possibilities related to key elements and best practices needed to successfully implement WIC EBT. This 201 workshop will be of most interest to those who are moving into or have started their implementation phase of WIC EBT, are interested in lessons learned from previous implementations, and/or want to gain an understanding of the necessary tools to ensure their success.
This workshop builds upon Workshop 1, but with a focus on SNAP and Cash EBT. Attendees will learn the gory details of successfully managing cash and SNAP EBT programs, covering all aspects of the program from adjustment processing to retailer management to settlement and reconciliation to restricting cash access and everything in between.
