Your P-EBT debit cards are starting to arrive in the mail!
The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides a monetary benefit , referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals if school was in session. The money is loaded on a debit card that will be mailed to your home address. The purpose of the debit cards are to help parents/guardians provide meals for their school-aged children over the summer months.
All students of FASD will receive this money because 100% of our students receive a free lunch.
Each student or family of students should receive a debit card in the mail, loaded with approximately $350 per school-aged student who was enrolled as of March 16, 2020.
Note: Families that already have an EBT card for purposes of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) will not be issued a new card. The existing card will be loaded with the additional benefit.
Cards are beginning to arrive in the mail. Be on the look out! The envelopes may look like junk mail, but they are addressed to your child. The debit card inside says "P-EBT" on it.
