Texas Health and Human Services is partnering with the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Education Agency to provide summer 2021 Pandemic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to eligible children. This program is for families with children (K-12) who are certfied for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). It is a one-time benefit of $375 for each eligible child. All students are receiving free meals at school this year, however, that does not automatically make them eligible for this P-EBT benefit.
Two options to apply:
