Texas Health and Human Services is partnering with the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Education Agency to provide school year 2021–2022 Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to eligible children.
School year 2021–2022 P-EBT is for families with children (K-12) who are certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and who temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals during the school year due to COVID-19. Receiving free meals at school does not automatically make a child NSLP certified or eligible for P-EBT benefits.
P-EBT benefits can be used the same way as SNAP benefits.
