P-EBT Application Reopened for Families Who Did Not Apply in May and June

Louisiana is reopening the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program for families who did not apply in May or June.  If you did not apply for P-EBT in May or June, you have another opportunity to receive benefits for meals your child missed when schools closed due to the pandemic. This second round of benefits is for families with children who were eligible to receive free or reduced-price school meals during the 2019-2020 school year and who were unable to apply during the first round. The student information submitted must exactly match the information on file with the child's school in order for the application to successfully submit. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.
