Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Supplemental Payments
Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCR)(P.L. 116-127) the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) approved the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide households with children eligible for free and reduced-priced meals under the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) or the School Breakfast Program (SBP) with P-EBT benefits due to the COVID-19 outbreak and related school closures. As part of the federal government's response to the pandemic, funding for the P-EBT has been extended through the end of September 2021. DHS will work with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to identify eligible children and issue P-EBT tentatively early Spring. More information can be found here.
