ERROR: Survey control file IDHSSNAPCovidAbsenceAttestationSurvey22-23.ascx does not exist.

Eligibility for P-EBT benefits is only for the days your child missed school due to a COVID-related reason.

COVID-related absences for purpose of P-EBT eligibility include: (1) Any absence where the school directs students to stay home for a COVID-related reason. This would include a school-ordered quarantine of a student, a group of students, a classroom, or a school; (2) Any other stay-at-home order mandated by the school, whatever its duration, if it is part of the school's or the State's protocol for managing COVID outbreaks, positive tests, and/or potential exposure; and (3) An absence initiated by the parent that is recognized and accepted by school officials as COVID-related. At the discretion of the school or the state, this could include a parent/guardian's decision to keep their child home after a positive test or possible exposure to COVID. It could also include, again at the discretion of the school or the State, a parent/guardian's decision to keep their child home after exposure at school in cases where the school does not direct the child to stay home.

By completing this form, you attest that your child missed access to an in-school meal that was COVID-related. For additional questions, visit the IDHS website and the P-EBT FAQ, email dhs.fcs.pebt@illinois.gov, or call the P-EBT Call Center at 1-833-621-0737.
