Interstate Migrant Education Council (IMEC)
In an effort to keep the MEP community informed during the pandemic, I am sharing the paper “Education and Humanistic Issues Faced by Migrant Education Programs During times of Pandemic and Natural Disasters” written by IMEC Consultant Solomon (Sol) Kaulukukui former Hawaii State MEP director.  With the impact of COVID-19 IMEC will continue to address issues that impact migrant staff, students, parents and stakeholders in future papers and virtual presentations.

Agribusiness
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nebraska commercial red meat production declined dramatically during May as slaughter plants worked furiously to keep their workers safe, which resulted in lower production as sick employees stayed home and plants implemented numerous safety protocols.

MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM CONSORTIA INFORMATION

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.
