This one-pager provides a quick guide to P-EBT and changes for the 2021-2022 school year.


Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) was a brand-new program implemented in 2020 in response to school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. P-EBT has been extended through the 2021-2022 school year, the summer of 2022, and as long as the current public health emergency continues. However, it looks a little different now than it did in 2020. This one-pager gives readers a quick background on P-EBT and outlines changes in the program.
