Department of Family Services program offers aid to eligible Wyoming families

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Wyoming has been approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-E-B-T) program offering extra help buying groceries for the families of children who normally receive free and reduced-price meals at school.

According to a DFS press release, the P-EBT program provides temporary assistance for households with children affected by school closures during the public health emergency.  Each qualified student may be eligible for up to a total of $285. 

Wyoming children who were receiving free or reduced lunch at the time of school closure due to COVID-19 are eligible for P-EBT. 

The Wyoming Department of Family Services is the implementing agency for P-EBT and is working in coordination with the Wyoming Department of Education and local school districts to verify eligibility for free or reduced-cost lunch and P-EBT under the National School Lunch Program.

To apply for the P-EBT program visit www.dfs.wyo.gov. Applications must be received by June 3, 2020.
