Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer

Students and families, 

Hastings Public Schools will be uploading student data for Nebraska’s Summer 2022 P-EBT benefit issuance. Families do not need to apply for these benefits.

Students are eligible for Summer 2022 P-EBT benefits if:
  • The student was enrolled in our school district on the last day of the 2021-22 school year;


  • The student qualified for free or reduced-priced meals during the 2021-22 school year; OR
  • The student submitted a meal application demonstrating eligibility for free or reduced-price meals during the summer coverage period (May 31 – August 13, 2022); OR
  • The student was matched in the Direct Certification system at some point during the summer coverage period (May 31 – August 13, 2022).

All qualifying students will receive the standard benefit of $391 in a single payment in mid-March.

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 and the DHHS EBT webpage.
