P-EBT Application Deadline Extended to July 31 

The deadline to apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) has been extended to July 31st. The Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), and Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) request that schools continue their communication efforts to eligible families. P-EBT provides a one-time benefit of up to $285 per eligible child that families can use to purchase food. Eligible families that have children 5-18 years old and received SNAP benefits for March have already received P-EBT benefits. All other eligible families must apply to receive P-EBT benefits.
 
Thousands of Texas families have already applied for P-EBT during the month of June. However, there are still many more students that are eligible for this program. Extending the deadline to July 31st will help ensure families have time to apply for these benefits. Please continue to promote P-EBT to eligible families and encourage them to submit an application using the resources linked to this email. 
 
Do you have questions about P-EBT?
For more information, please visit http://hhs.texas.gov/pebt (English) or http://hhs.texas.gov/es/pebt (Spanish) or call the P-EBT call center at 833-613-6220 Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm.
