PS-3rd grade on campus learners are not eligible for March, April & May P-EBT funds. All other students PS-12th grade are eligible.
Why: Lunch was offered daily to all PS-3rd grade onsite students. Receiving a meal served on campus on a school day makes a student ineligible for the P-EBT benefit. Families who already receive SNAP benefits will NOT get a new card. Funds are loaded onto their Ohio Direction card for all eligible students.
Non-SNAP recipients receive(d) a P-EBT card for each qualifying student. Families must keep the P-EBT card! Card is reloaded monthly. Funds loaded to cards about 2 months later.
March benefits were distributed the end of May.
April benefits will be paid sometime toward the end of June.
May benefits will be paid sometime toward the end of July.
Summer P-EBT benefits/funds will be issued to all students enrolled on the last day of 2020-2021 school year regardless of virtual or on campus status. Expect those benefits to be distributed 2 months later (June's near the end of August and so on).
