P-EBT food benefits applications being accepted from eligible families
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) applications for eligible families are being accepted now through Aug. 13. P-EBT food benefits are for families with children who are certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and families with children born after Aug. 1, 2014 who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits. P-EBT benefits can be used the same way as SNAP benefits. P-EBT is administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Texas Department of Agriculture and Texas Education Agency.
For more information, please contact the P-EBT call center at 833-442-1255 or visit [hhs.texas.gov/pebt]hhs.texas.gov/pebt.
