Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)
Because of school closures from COVID-19, Texas received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide more than $1 billion in pandemic food benefits to families with children that have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals.
A new assistance program from Texas Health and Human Services Commission is available starting June 1. Eligible households may apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) one-time payment of up to $285. Click here for more information and to apply.
