    WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

    Students going to a K-12 school that offers a school lunch program during the school year AND
    • Is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals; OR
    • Is attending a school where meals are free for all students

    CAN IMMIGRANT HOUSEHOLDS APPLY?

    Yes. Using P-EBT benefits does not count as a public charge. P-EBT does not change a parent or child’s immigration status. P-EBT replaces school meals and are for all families that receive free and reduced price school meals.

    WHAT IS THE BENEFIT?

    For children who received free or reduced price meals when schools closed in March, each family will get $399 per child. For families that enrolled in Basic Food or applied for school meal benefits after schools closed, each child will get less than that. The value depends on when you applied for food assistance.
