EPIC is a three-year SNAP employment and training project in Illinois designed to help unemployed or underemployed customers by offering expanded employment and training services.
Customers in the EPIC program have the opportunity to participate in a baseline survey that will be used to impact how SNAP and employment services are provided.
Caseworkers should review and update all eligibility requirements prior to the customer beginning the baseline survey.
In order to preserve the integrity of the survey, caseworkers should not use information provided in the survey by customers to determine SNAP eligibility. Information in the survey should be used for research purposes only.
