EDINBURG, Texas – Edinburg CISD officials are reminding families to apply for SNAP benefits as part of the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT).
The program gives families that apply $285 per child to purchase groceries.
The funds are approved by the state for any student that receives free or reduced-price lunch.
“It is not based on income. It is not based on anything but the child receiving free lunch at school. So, we need parents to apply. The funds are there,” said Sandra Rodriguez, a Family and Community Coordinator with ECISD.
The deadline to apply is June 30, for more information you can see our previous coverage here.
