Special Pandemic Fund for Food for School-Aged Children Available Through July 15th
Earlier this year, IDHS sought and received federal approval to administer the Pandemic Emergency Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program, which provides funds to help Illinois families buy food for school-aged children and young adults who would receive National School Lunch Program free or reduced-priced meals when schools are in session.
Although school has ended for the year, families can still apply for P-EBT until July 15th.
If you currently receive #Snap benefits, you are automatically eligible for P-EBT benefits and do not need to apply. Your P-EBT benefits will be automatically loaded into your Illinois LINK EBT account along with your regular snap benefits.
If you do not currently receive #SNAP benefits and need to apply for the P-EBT program, or to learn more, click here: http://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=124142 #HelpIsHere
