Connect eligible Colorado families with food benefits!
Wednesday, September 23rd, is the last day families can apply for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT). This means we have less than three weeks to get the word out!
Currently, more than 200,000 eligible students still need their families to apply for these vital food benefits.
P-EBT provides eligible families with funds to help buy food since schools were closed this spring due to the pandemic. Households that were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals at schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program can receive up to $279 per eligible child in benefits to buy food. P-EBT is for all families with eligible students, regardless of immigration status, and P-EBT is not part of the public charge rule. Some families that were on SNAP this spring may have automatically received P-EBT onto their SNAP cards this July, but all other eligible families must apply before
