Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) – School Year 2021-2022
Some Texas families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals during School Year 2021-2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic will receive P-EBT food benefits.
More information about this year’s P-EBT benefits, including eligibility requirements and benefit amounts, will be released in mid-April.
One requirement for P-EBT is that students must be certified as eligible for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) at their Texas school during the 2021-2022 school year. Receiving free meals at school does not automatically qualify a child for P-EBT.
Should I submit a Meal Application for my child (ren)?
• You DO NOT need to apply if:
Your child has been directly certified, lives in a household approved for SNAP, Medicaid, TANF, attends our Head Start program or has foster, migrant or homeless status.
• You DO need to apply if:
You believe your family is income eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
• Not sure if you are income eligible?
The District will send more information out as soon as we receive it in mid-April. You may submit an application now. We will process and send your results via email to ensure that if your student is eligible for P-EBT there will be no interruption in benefit issuance.
