Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides temporary benefits,
referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children
who would receive free or reduced-priced meals if school was in session.
For each day school is closed, families of school-aged children certified as free or reduced
eligible will receive the equivalent of the free high rate for lunch and the severe need rate for
breakfast. Specifically, a family will receive $5.70 for each eligible school-aged child in their
family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020.
