Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Application To Open for Eligible Spring ISD Families

  • Spring ISD Parents/Guardians:

    We wanted to let you know that your children may qualify to receive the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT).

    Students (up to 21 years of age) in families that temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals during the 2020–2021 school year may be eligible to receive P-EBT benefits, which can be used to buy food from any retailer that accepts the Lone Star Card.

    The P-EBT benefit was approved by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Texas Department of Agriculture and Texas Education Agency. P-EBT benefits can be used the same way as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits.

    A parent/guardian must apply if eligible child is:

    • Enrolled in K-12 and NOT part of a family who received SNAP benefits for at least one month between August 2020 and June 2021.
    • Born on or before Aug. 1, 2014, and is part of a family who received SNAP benefits for the first time during the 2020–2021 school year in May or June 2021.

    A parent/guardian does not have to apply if eligible child is:

    • Born on or before Aug. 1, 2014, and is part of a family who received SNAP benefits for at least one month between August 2020 and April 2021.
    • Born after Aug. 1, 2014, and is part of a family who received SNAP benefits for at least one month between October 2020 and June 2021

    The application for P-EBT will open Wednesday, June 2. To apply, visit yourtexasbenefits.com/Learn/PEBT. The application link is case-sensitive. The deadline to apply is Friday, Aug. 13.
