In June and July of 2020, the Department of Human Services (DHS) issued Pandemic Benifit Transfer (P-EBT ) Cards. There were several waves of issuance. These cards were issued to families that recieved Free and Reduced meals during the 2019-20 school year. Additionaly, all students enrolled in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Schools also qualified to recieve the P-EBT cards. The card funds were calculated on the days between the closure in March and the end of school.
There was a state error during this process and DHS issued additional P-EBT cards to famlies that did not qualify. The state requested that these cards be destroyed. They are working to deactive cards issued in error.
