What is P-EBT?

P-EBT is a one-time benefit that allows families to buy food. P-EBT is for children who received SNAP food benefits for March 2020 and children who were certified for free or reduced-price school meals during the 2019-20 Texas school year.

How do eligible families get P-EBT benefits?

Families cannot apply for P-EBT until June 1, 2020.

School districts will be sending eligible families a link to the online P-EBT application at the beginning of June. The application will open on June 1, 2020 and close on June 30, 2020. Once the application is processed and verified, eligible families will receive a P-EBT card in the mail.

Families currently on SNAP will receive benefits on their existing SNAP card automatically. No action is needed.

What outreach resources are available for schools to share with families?

By the end of May, School districts will receive P-EBT outreach materials to share with eligible families in their school district.  Pink Banner
