K-12 students eligible for Pandemic EBT

 


Students in grades K-12 are eligible for Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) cards to help with buying groceries while school is closed for the summer. Families can apply by calling (877) 501-2233 or online at http://www.WashingtonConnection.org. The application will be open by June 30th. (Application is not currently open).

If your family receives Basic Food through DSHS and your children receive free or reduced-price school meals, you do not need to apply for P-EBT. You will automatically receive these one-time benefits on your EBT card. You will need to apply for P-EBT if your children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals but do not receive Basic Food benefits.

 All students in grades K-5 qualify since Dayton Elementary and Waitsburg Elementary are Community Elegibility Provision (CEP) Program schools (all students are receiving free meals).  Families would need to apply for the P-EBT card (when the application is open) to receive the EBT card in the mail within 35 days of submitting the application. 

Students in grades 6-12 who are not receiving Basic Food benefits but are receiving free or reduced priced meals are eligible for an EBT card. If you have had a change of income since school closed in March, families are eligible to fill out an application and return it to the District office. Last day to turn in a new free and reduced meal form will be Thursday, June 25th. 

If you have questions regarding program eligibility or need more information regarding the Pandemic EBT card, please contact:

Dayton School District, Food Services Program Director, Jane Eaton at (509) 382-2543 or (509) 520-7051.

Waitsburg School District, Food Services Supervisor, Susan Wildey at (509) 337-6301.
