Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)
The Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) is a program for families that provides a debit card preloaded with funds that can be used for groceries. To be eligible, children must qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income AND have turned in the free or reduced-priced meals application to school for 2020-2021, OR be enrolled in a school that participated in the Community Eligibility Provision, Provision 2 or Provision 3 federal program in 2020-2021.
There is no application process necessary to obtain these benefits. Families will automatically receive benefits if their school has identified that a student qualifies. For additional information, please visit this link.
We encourage families to complete the Free or Reduced Meal Application for the 2021-2022 school year in case the P-EBT benefit is available again next year.
