Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer

Students and families,

Starting in April 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 who have been:

 

  • Determined eligible for free or reduced-price school meals by application or directly certified through SNAP, TANF or Medicaid eligibility for school years 2019-20, or 2020-21,

AND

  • Have opted-in for fully remote learning,

OR

  • Experienced a quarantine for a minimum of five consecutive school days.

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 funds monthly based on our district's learning mode (Remote Learners/Quarantined Students = $62/month).

The benefit issuance schedule is as follows:
April 15 - October & November Benefits Issued
May 15 - December & January Benefits Issued
June 15 - February & March Benefits Issued
July 15 - April & May Benefits Issued
