Community Transformation

Partnerships that Promote Change

Illinois Nutrition Education Program’s SNAP-Education works to create community partnerships that promote change.

In 2019, SNAP-Ed worked with 107 coalitions representing 1,416 total community organizations and community members. These coalitions worked together to enact changes across their communities, allowing healthy changes to reach more families.

In addition, 266 organizations made changes with the assistance of SNAP-Ed. Assistance included completing grant applications and making changes to layout, signage and product promotion to encourage healthier choices. Community partners received $274,300 in grant funds related to applications where SNAP-Ed assisted in completion.
