ODE has coordinated with DHS to offer a simplified system for distributing information about the Pandemic EBT benefit.
Status of P-EBT for the 2020/2021 School Year
Oregon has submitted a plan to provide P-EBT benefits to eligible students retroactively back to October 2020. Initial P-EBT issuances will start going out by the end of May. Retroactive benefits will be broken out over the first 2 payments. Dates are contingent on final approval from the USDA, Food and Nutrition Service.
A new system is being developed to issue 2020/2021 P-EBT benefits.
Updates regarding P-EBT, including information about how the program will be implemented and when, will be shared at https://www.oregon.gov/dhs/ASSISTANCE/FOOD-BENEFITS/Pages/P-EBT.aspx as soon as they are available. Contact 211 for general P-EBT questions or to learn more about other food resources available in your area

**PLEASE NOTE: All students receiving meal benefits (whether Free/Reduced by application or directly certified by the State), including all students enrolled in 2020-21 CEP sites (Lynch, Sage, Vern Patrick, Tuck, & Hartman) are eligible for Pandemic EBT benefits**
