P-EBT BENEFITS DEADLINE EXTENSION
The deadline to apply for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits has been extended until Friday, Sept. 11. P-EBT benefits help families most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis continue to have access to nutritious meals. P-EBT is available for students, including children of immigrant households, who were enrolled in a K-12 school that offered a school lunch program during the 2019-20 school year AND were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals; or attended a school where meals were free for all students.
To apply, click here or call 877–501–2233 (DSHS Customer Service Contact Center — interpreter services are available). For more information on P-EBT, click here (note that the deadline to apply has been extended from Aug. 31 to Sept. 11).
