Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Your household may be eligible to receive Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to buy food. P-EBT is for children 5-18 years old who received SNAP food benefits for the month of March 2020 and children up to 21 years old who are certified for free or reduced-price meals at school in Texas during the 2019-20 school year. Children that attend a school that offers free meals to all students (Community Eligibility Provision or Provision 2) are also eligible.

The online application for P-EBT is now open. Please review the criteria to see if you need to apply to receive these benefits. The application link is provided below.

Do I need to apply for P-EBT?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19

We all play a role in reducing the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak in our school district community. We encourage everyone to practice good habits, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Cover your mouth/nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough/sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
  • If you are feeling sick, stay home! This will help reduce the risk of infecting others.
