Hey, Texas Families! Do you have questions about P-EBT?

The application for P-EBT benefits is now open until Aug. 13. P-EBT provides food benefits to families with eligible children who temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price meals during the 2020–21 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To apply visit: yourtexasbenefits.co m/Learn/PEBT. Free and reduced households will receive an email with the application as well. For more information: www.hhs.texas.gov/se rvices/health/corona virus-covid-19/coron avirus-covid-19 or 833-442-1255
 
The purpose of P-EBT is to provide food assistance to families with students who would have received free or reduced-price lunch while attending school but are not attending school in person because of COVID-19 restrictions. This benefit is available only to families with students enrolled in a Texas school who were eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, or the school is a Community Eligibility Provision participant.
 
To be eligible for P-EBT the following criteria must be met:
 
*Your child’s school must have been closed, had a delayed start or had reduced attendance or hours for five consecutive days.
 
*Your child’s school must participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or School Breakfast Program. Only eligible schools are listed on this application.
 
*Your child must be enrolled in a Texas school.
 
Students must also meet at least one of the eligibility requirements below:
 
*Meet income eligibility guidelines for free or reduced-price school meals and report that to their school through a socioeconomic form or school meals application.
 
*Attend a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) or Provision 2 (P2) school where all students receive free meals.
 
Applications will be processed in the order they are received.
 
If your household currently receives SNAP and you are eligible for P-EBT benefits, they will be put on your current Lone Star Card. If you are not currently receiving SNAP, they will mail you a new card with P-EBT benefits.
 
A child is eligible for only one P-EBT benefit, even if they are part of multiple households. P-EBT benefits are nontransferable.
