Student EBT 

Student EBT 

P-EBT is a federal program that gives eligible families food benefits to replace meals lost at child care or school due to the pandemic. Beginning in School Year (SY) 2019–20, Congress authorized the issuance of funds to families of eligible children under the P-EBT program. P-EBT cards were issued for SY 2019–20, 2020–21, and cards will be issued for SY 2021–22 beginning in September 2022 (pending U.S. Department of Agriculture approval).
