P-EBT Food Benefit Program

NYS continues to implement the supplemental P-EBT pandemic food benefit program. The benefits are not associated with ‘ongoing’ food stamps. The program was designed to help families with food needs caused by children being home from school during the pandemic. They do not need to be repaid. Most schools in NYS have been granted this benefit for each child that attended a school that received free or reduced meals during the regular school year. The first distribution was given out last year. This is the second (and possibly the final) round.
 
Information about the program can be found through this link.
