Pandemic EBT

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program is now available for the 2021-22 school year.  P-EBT is a food assistance benefit for eligible students.  Throughout the 2021-22 school year, COVID-19 continued to cause schools to operate with reduced attendance due to COVID-19-related student absences.   P-EBT provides support to help families with children who were affected by the pandemic.  Eligibility criteria for these benefits is NOT the same as it has previously been.  There is no application to apply for this round of benefits, and nothing needs to be done by families at this time.  If your child is eligible, the benefit will be loaded onto a P-EBT card in their name.  Please read the letter from DESE for more information.
