The Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Program was created in Spring 2020 to provide funds for families to buy food while schools were closed due to COVID-19. More P-EBT funds are being issued for the 2020-21 school year and will be available this summer.
- Eligible students in HYBRID learning situations: you will get $48.23 per month. “Hybrid” means a combination of computer-based and in-person learning.
- Eligible students in FULLY VIRTUAL learning situations: you will get $120.71 per month. “Fully virtual” means taking classes by computer.
- You can use P-EBT funds and also get food from grab-and-go student meal sites.
- Using P-EBT does NOT impact your or your student’s immigration status. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT funds.
