P-EBT Info

P-EBT Update for the 2021-22 School Year

The federal P-EBT program will operate under new eligibility guidelines for the current school year and benefits will only be issued on a case-by-case basis to students who meet specific criteria, as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are no additional P-EBT benefits scheduled to be released at this time.

More information, as well as any updates, can be found on the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) website.
