Virginia Initiative for Employment not Welfare (VIEW) The VIEW program establishes a two year time limit on TANF benefits while requiring recipients to become engaged in a work activity in preparation for employment. VIEW is the work component which combines work and work-related activities with education and training. TANF recipients are required to participate in VIEW when their youngest child turns twelve (12) months old unless they meet an exemption. SNAP Employment and Training (SNAPET) Program provides Employment Training Education and Supportive Services to customers who receive SNAP benefits. Program participation is voluntary as of January 1, 2012. Therefore participation or nonparticipation in SNAPET will have no effect on SNAP benefits. However, not choosing to participate in the program, where offered, can prevent SNAP recipients from receiving services that could help them find and keep employment.
