P-EBT now available to Nebraska children and families
On Thursday, June 18, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services was approved to implement Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), a temporary federal option that allows states to provide resources to families whose kids are on the free and reduced-price lunch program while schools are closed. P-EBT will provide eligible families with two additional disbursements of benefits to help purchase food for their children. This will result in tens of millions of dollars going directly to help Nebraska families meet basic needs during these challenging economic times.
