P-EBT benefits for all NYC school children

AnnouncementsComments Off on P-EBT benefits for all NYC school children

NY State issued Pandemic-EBT funds to families for all children enrolled in school for the 2020-2021 school year.   If your child was enrolled in our school during this period, your child is automatically “on the list” to receive P-EBT funds that can be used to purchase food.

The P-EBT cards are mailed automatically to the address currently on file with DOE (the address that appears in your NYCSA).   Benefits for the Fall 2020 period were mailed in June.  Benefits for the Spring 2021 were scheduled to be mailed this fall.

Distribution of P-EBT funds for missed school meals during the 2019-2020 school year have been completed, and new inquiries about this period are no longer being processed.

If you received a card last year, the new funds will be transferred to the same card.  If you lost the card, you can visit the NYS P-EBT FAQ webpage or the Community Food Advocates P-EBT webpage or information on how to request a replacement card or what to do about an expired card with a balance.

If you receive SNAP or Medicaid benefits, your funds were transferred to your card for those program.

Please take a look at the Community Food Advocates P-EBT webpage for more important information about P-EBT, including a helpline for your questions.
