Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a one-time benefit for eligible families to buy food.
 
P-EBT is for families who meet at least one of the following criteria:
  • Children up to 21 years old who are certified for free or reduced-price meals at school in Texas
    during the 2019-20 school year.
  • Children 5-18 years old who received SNAP food benefits for the month of March 2020.
  • Children who attend a school that offers free meals to all students (Community Eligibility
    Provision or Provision 2).
 
Who needs to complete an online application?
  • Families that did NOT receive SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020 AND have children
    who are certified for free or reduced-price meals or who attend a school that offers free meals
    to all students.
  • Families that received SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020, with children under 5 and/or
    between the ages of 19 and 21 as of March 17, 2020.
 
Who does not need to submit an application?
  • Families that received SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020 who have children ages 5-18
    as of March 17, 2020. Benefits will be loaded onto your existing SNAP card by May 22. No action
    is needed.
 
How do I apply?
  • Apply at https://yourtexasbenefits.com/Learn/PEBT
  • The application will be open until July 31, 2020.
  • If you get SNAP benefits and your child is approved for P-EBT, Texas Health and Human Services
    (HHS) will put funds on your current Lone Star Card. If you do not currently get SNAP benefits,
    HHS will mail you a P-EBT card loaded with benefits.
