Summer P-EBT Program

 

Great news for our students and families The Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services on May 20 sent to districts and schools an email regarding the summer P-EBT program. They have approved P-EBT benefits distribution to all Ohio free or reduced-price meal eligible students in summer 2021 including all our elementary students because they are a CEP school. 

The P-EBT program provides families who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly known as food stamps. The daily benefit amount is $6.82 (the federal reimbursement rate for breakfast, lunch and snack). In summer 2021, each free or reduced-price meal eligible student will receive $375 dollars, equivalent to 55 days of benefits. This would include all our elementary students because we are a CEP school and our 7-12 who are free and reduced lunch/breakfast.

The summer P-EBT is not dependent on a student's remote education status. All free or reduced-price meal eligible students qualify for the benefit.

Students meeting the following criteria are eligible for summer P-EBT:

  • Approved for free or reduced-price meals in school year 2020-2021;
  • Approved for free or reduced-price meals in school year 2019-2020 of which free or reduced-price meal application materials were not received in school year 2020-2021;
  • Schools and districts will include students graduating in spring 2021 but may not include students who graduated or withdrew prior to the end of the 2020-2021 school year; and
  • Schools and districts who were approved in school year 2020-2021 to operate the Community Eligibility Provision or Provision 2 program, even if the school participated in the Summer Food Service Program or Seamless Summer Option instead, may submit all enrolled students.
