Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)

Throughout the pandemic, the Texas Health and Human Services partnered with the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Education Agency to provide state-funded Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to eligible children.

Most recently, the summer P-EBT (June–August) was for families with children (K-12) who were certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and for families with children born after Aug. 1, 2014, who receive SNAP food benefits. Receiving free meals at school does not automatically make a child eligible for P-EBT benefits.

The eligibility period for the most recent P-EBT program has ended.

We encourage families to apply for SNAP benefits at to automatically be eligible for future potential state-funded benefits. 

Families may find more information about P-EBT through Texas Health and Human Services.
