Pandemic Electronic Benefit Supplemental Payments

  • The Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program will provide additional funding for families of children who normally receive free or reduced-price meals at school through the National School Lunch program (NSLP). Program funds will be distributed in three phases:

    • Phase 1: First week of June; Money went to participants already known to DHS through DHS programs (like SNAP)
    • Phase 2: Mid-June; Money will go to NSLP participants who don’t use DHS programs.
    • Phase 3: Late-June; Money will go to families that had not previously participated in NSLP but recently applied for and were deemed eligible for NSLP.
