PEBT Benefit Deadline Approaching
The deadline to apply for P-EBT is Tuesday, June 30. P-EBT provides a one-time benefit of up to $285 per eligible child that families can use to purchase food. Eligible families that have children 5-18 years old and received SNAP benefits for March have already received P-EBT benefits. All other eligible families must apply to receive P-EBT benefits.
Thousands of families across Texas have applied for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. However, there are still many more students that are eligible for this program. On average, only 70 percent of eligible families in Texas have applied for P-EBT.
