Dear Parent or Guardian,
Texas Health and Human Services is partnering with the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Education Agency to provide summer 2021 Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to eligible children.
Summer P-EBT (June–August) is for families with children (K–12) who are certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and for families with children born after Aug. 1, 2014, who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits. It is a one-time benefit of $375 for each eligible child. Receiving free meals at school does not automatically make a child eligible for P-EBT benefits.
There is no summer 2021 P-EBT online application. For more information about summer P-EBT, visit hhs.texas.gov/pebt.
