Question of the Week 

Question: What is the Pandemic – Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program and how can I access this resource?  

 

Answer: The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program will help to provide groceries for more than 800,000 children who normally receive free and reduced lunch at school. Families will receive approximately $370 in total P-EBT benefits per child, provided over two installments, and these funds can be used to purchase food items from authorized retailers, including most major grocery stores. Families do not need to apply to receive these services. Those who already receive Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) will have the funds transferred automatically to their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card and those who are not currently receiving FNS will have an EBT card mailed to them in the next few weeks. All unused benefits will rollover from month-to-month, but must be used within 365 days.
