Region 3 Friday Update for 08/02/2019

08.02.19.docx

Hello SNAP-Ed Friends,

Thank you to everyone for working with us on final adjustments to your FFY20 plans the last few weeks. We submitted our Region 3 SNAP-Ed plan and budget updates to DSHS this week on Monday!  We will let you know if/as we receive questions from DSHS, and send your final approved plans out as soon as we hear back on approval from DSHS and FNS. There may not be any updates the next two weeks, as next week is our ME with DSHS, and the following week Acacia will be on vacation!
