Have you applied for the Pandemic Electronic Transfer?
According to KCEN-TV, Friday is the last day to apply for a one time benefit of $285. These benefits are being given to families that lost free or reduced meals due to COVID-19.
Anyone up to 21 years old who qualified for reduced or free meals during the 2019- 2020 school year are eligible. This one-time benefit is available per child for families.
To apply, you must visit the Texas Benefits website and complete the application. After completing the process, the card will be mailed. All benefits will be issued by no later than September 30.
Please be advised that households with children between 5 and 18 who received SNAP benefits in March have already received P-EBT benefits.
