USDA announced continuation of P-EBT program
NDE Nutrition Services recently notified us that the USDA has announced the continuation of the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. Instituted as part of the U.S. government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program is designed to provide financial compensation in the form of cash benefits to families with children on free and reduced-price meals who experienced additional financial burden due to their child/children missing meals as a result of school closures and adjusted schedules during the 2020-2021 school year. Please visit the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services or refer to the FAQ Fact Sheet linked below for more information.
If your child/children qualify for these P-EBT beneifts, your family will be receiving notification in the form of a letter from Arapahoe Public Schools.
