The state of Texas and federal government have opened the P-EBT (or Pandemic Electronic Benefit Program) process for qualifying families in need to seek food assistance, with information about the program now available at this link.

Each state handles its own P-EBT process, with the state of Texas opening its process the first week of June. Northwest ISD has sent this information to families who qualify for the program, which includes children who received SNAP food benefits in March 2020 as well as children who are certified for free or reduced-priced meals during the 2019-20 school year.

P-EBT provides eligible families with a one-time payment for each child to assist with children who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-priced school meals.

The Texas P-EBT application is open until June 30, 2020. Families who received SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020 do not need to apply as they are automatically entered into the program. Families whose children were certified for free or reduced-priced meals during the 2019-20 school year can apply at this link.

La aplicación P-EBT estará abierta hasta el 30 de junio de 2020.
