EBT Info.

Continuing Pandemic EBT Through the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021, the federal government has extended Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) through the 2020-2021 school year. Massachusetts was the first state in the country to receive USDA approval to continue issuing P-EBT. Eligible households received their P-EBT benefits to cover October and November school days on December 30, 2020. Eligible households in school districts that did not submit their files on time to DESE are expected to receive their October and November benefits in a special payment the week of January 11. Households will receive benefits to cover December school days on January 25 and moving forward, benefits for the previous month will be issued on the 25th of every month.
