Financial assistance for families under Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program

posted Jul 9, 2020, 1:58 PM by Anthony Sandstrom
District 60 families may be eligible to benefit from a new program authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) called Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer, or P-EBT. 

Regardless of income, each child may be eligible to receive $279 in addition to the free meals D60 provides at most of our schools on a daily basis. If your family is already receiving SNAP benefits and possesses an EBT card, you do not need to apply and the funds will automatically be transferred to your current card. All others should complete the application as soon as possible. 

To complete the application, you will need your child’s State Assigned Student ID, also referred to as their SASID number. 

To access the P-EBT application visit: https://www.colorado.gov/cdhs/p-ebt.

Upon approval, an EBT card with the qualifying amount will be mailed to you. 

For more information about P-EBT, please visit the Colorado Department of Human Services’ Frequently Asked Questions webpage. If you have further questions, please contact pebt2020@state.co.us and a representative will respond. 

You can also find more detailed information, including instructions to access and complete the form, in this letter send to D60 families

If you have other questions or need help, contact Jill Kidd, District 60 Director of Nutrition Services, jill.kidd@pueblocityschools.us, or at 719-240-6612
