Wednesday, September 23rd is the Last Day Families Can Apply for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)

Please reach out to us to get your SASID ID number. You MUST have this number to fill out an application.  Currently, more than 200,000 eligible students still need their families to apply for these vital food benefits.  P-EBT provides eligible families with funds to help buy food since schools were closed this spring due to the pandemic. Households that were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals at schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program can receive up to $279 per eligible child in benefits to buy food. P-EBT is for all families with eligible students, regardless of immigration status, and P-EBT is not part of the public charge rule. Some families that were on SNAP this spring may have automatically received P-EBT onto their SNAP cards this July, but all other eligible families must apply before September 23rd!  Please contact Elizabeth Begley with any questions.
