Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a one-time food benefit for families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school closures. Eligible P-EBT families have received application instructions from schools this week. The P-EBT application will open the first week of June. P-EBT food benefits are for children who received SNAP food benefits for March 2020 and children who are certified for free or reduced-price meals during the 2019-20 Texas school year.

The deadline to apply for P-EBT food benefits has been extended to August 21, 2020.
