An extension to the deadline to file a P-EBT SNAP application has been granted to 08/31/2020. Households who apply for P-EBT in May, June, July or August have eligibility back to March through June 2020 (if eligible for free/reduced-price meals during the timeframe). Applications for P-EBT benefits will be accepted through 08/31/2020.
For new SNAP applications, a weekly systematic process is in place to review applications that are approved in the last week. P-EBT benefits will be created for any eligible household (contains a child in school that has not already received a P-EBT benefit).
