EDINBURG, Texas (KVEO) – Edinburg CISD is reminding people that the deadline to apply for Pandemic Electronic Benefit transfer (P-EBT) is June 30, 2020.

According to Texas Health and Human Services, P-EBT works the same way as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and provides eligible families, who previously received free or reduced-price meals, a one-time payment to help pay for groceries.

Children 5-18 who received SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020 and children up to age 21 who received free or reduced-price meals through the national school lunch program are eligible.

Eligible families will receive $285 per eligible child.

For more information on P-EBT, please visit the HHS website.
