The Texas state plan for the school year 2021-2022 Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (PEBT) program has been approved by the US Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). PEBT provides food benefits to families with enrolled National School Lunch Program (NSLP)-eligible students who temporarily lose access to free or reduced-price school meals for the 2021–2022 school year due to COVID-19-related absences or school closures. For school year 2021-2022, P-EBT benefit amounts will be different for each NSLP-eligible student. Per federal regulations, amounts are based on the number of COVID-19-related absences a student has.
