Notification of Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)
Starting in May 2021, Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits will be issued to eligible students. Families do not need to apply for these benefits. Benefits will be issued to students that have experienced a quarantine for a minimum of five consecutive days, not including weekends or scheduled breaks.
Our district will submit student eligibility data to the Nebraska Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services. Eligible students will receive $62 monthly, if they qualified during that month for the 5 consecutive days of quarantine. Information on how to use the cards will be issued with the cards.
Additional information on the P-EBT assistance program can be found on USDA’s website, https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/state-guidance-coronavirus-pandemic-ebt-pebt and the DHHS EBT webpage, https://dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/EBT.aspx.
