|The Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), and Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) request that schools do a second P-EBT communication push to eligible families. P-EBT provides a one-time benefit of up to $285 per eligible child that families can use to purchase food. Eligible families that have children 5-18 years old and received SNAP benefits for March have already received P-EBT benefits. All other eligible families must apply to receive P-EBT benefits. |

On average, about 70% of eligible families in Texas have applied for P-EBT. The deadline to apply for P-EBT is Tuesday, June 30. Please continue to promote P-EBT to eligible families and encourage them to submit an application using the resources attached to this correspondence below.
