Pandemic-EBT Assistance for Needy Families with Children is Activated by HHSC

Families with children who received free or reduced meals through their schools last school year are eligible for an additional pandemic-related food assistance benefit as a form of supplemental nutrition assistance.

Families already receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits have already had P-EBT supplemental funding added to their EBT cards. Other families not already receiving SNAP assistance can now apply for P-EBT aid. Our Social Services Enrollment staff is capable of assisting with this application process and answering questions. Please call 409-839-8777 ext. 121 for help.

Also, please see the Frequently Asked Questions guidance provided by the Health and Human Services Commission about the P-EBT benefit.

The mission of the Texas WIC (Women, Infants & Children) program is to improve the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.
