P-EBT / Pandemic EBT Update
May 2021: Oregon has been approved to provide Pandemic EBT for the 2020-21 school year. This round of Pandemic EBT from the state, provides families financial support to cover the cost of school meals during school closures, reduced hours, or remote learning.
Pandemic EBT benefits are provided automatically to children:
– That are approved for federal free or reduced price school meals.
– Attend a school (Community Eligibility Provision school) that provides free meals to all students during normal school operations. (All schools in our district are currently CEP except Arthur Academy and the Community Transitions Program).
– In this new round of P-EBT, children 0-6 who receive SNAP will also receive PEBT benefits. Children 0-5 will be automatically issued benefits, while children aged 6 who are not yet in school will need additional verification to ODHS.
Pandemic EBT benefits will be provided retroactively from October 2020 through May 2021 and will be dispersed on cards starting at the end of July 2021. The benefit amounts will not be fixed, will vary by month, and will depend on the status of schools in the eligible child’s school district. There are three possible statuses for schools in the district: fully remote learning or school is closed, a hybrid of remote learning and in-person instruction, or fully in-person. A family would receive a combination of the full benefit, the partial benefit, or no benefits, depending on the school’s status for each corresponding month.
Benefits will be added to current cards, or a new card will be mailed to the most recent address on file for the child’s school. If a family’s address has changed, please contact the child’s school district to update by July 20th.
Districts that are open for 100% in-person or on-site school are NOT eligible for P-EBT.
There is no application for families to submit for benefits. Do not fill out a meal application if your child’s school is CEP.
P-EBT benefits are provided through Oregon Department of Human Services.
