Submit this form to your child nutrition department before August 28, 2021, to demonstrate eligibility for Summer P-EBT.

Summer PEBT provides a $375 to supplement a family’s food budget during the covered summer period with a EBT benefit card.

Eligible families are encouraged to demonstrate eligibility for a one-time summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefit by submitting the household school meal application before August 28, 2021.
