P-EBT NEWS DHHR and WVDE have received approval from USDA to issue Summer P-EBT benefits to eligible student and non-student populations. This will be a one-time Summer feeding benefit valued at $391 per eligible child. Summer P-EBT will be deposited onto the child’s WV P-EBT card. The state will not utilize the Mountain State EBT card for Summer P-EBT. Eligible students are those that were enrolled during school year 2021-2022 in a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program as of May 31, 2022 and qualifies for free or reduced-price school meals. Eligible children not yet enrolled in school are those that are under the age of 6 and reside in a household that receives SNAP. Any child under 6 who becomes eligible for SNAP, or any individual student who becomes eligible for free or reduced-price meals (during the covered Summer period) will be deemed eligible for Summer P-EBT and will be issued the full benefit in an exception process at the end of the covered Summer period. Students at participating schools who did not qualify for free or reduced-price meals during 2021-2022 school year and have experienced a change in status that could deem them eligible for free or reduced-price meals, should contact their county or school child nutrition contact to complete a free/reduced-price meal application before July 31, 2022. Households can expect to receive the one-time benefit during the month of August 2022. An exact date will be announced at a later time. All eligible households will receive a letter with important information before the benefit is issued. West Virginia estimates Summer P-EBT will be issued to approximately 255,000 children, drawing down nearly $100 million in additional federal funding. Information, including the latest updates, regarding the PEBT program can be found on the PEBT website https://wvde.us/wv-pebt/ If you get questions from student’s families please direct them to the website or the PEBT hotline at 1-866-545-6502. Additionally, families may send an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
