The Parent P-EBT Review Form is available March 13 – April 15, 2023, if you need assistance with P-EBT for the school year 2021-2022.
For the 2021-2022 school year, schoolchildren must meet three important eligibility requirements:
Children must have been enrolled in a school district that participates in a federal meal program where meals are served at a school, known as the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.
The student’s school is closed or operating at reduced hours or reduced attendance due to COVID for at least five consecutive days in the 2021-2022 school year.
Children must qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income and have turned in the free or reduced-priced meals application to your children’s school for 2021-2022, OR be enrolled in a school that participated in the Community Eligible Provision, Provision 2 or Provision 3 federal program in 2021-2022.
If you believe your child meets the above eligibility criteria and you did not receive your 2021-2022 school year card by March 8, 2023, or your 2022 Summer P-EBT benefits by March 8, 2023, please fill out the review form on the OSDE website by April 15, 2023. Please submit a separate form for each student. Your school will have an opportunity to review your information. Only your child’s school can verify eligibility for P-EBT benefits. Any new benefits for the 2021-2022 school year or Summer 2022 stemming from corrections will be disbursed by DHS in Summer 2023.
If you have lost your child's P-EBT card, you may request a new card at (888) 328-6551 or connectEBT.com.
