Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer

Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) is a program that helps children who would have received free or reduced-price meals at their schools if not for the COVID-19 pandemic. In Oklahoma, the Department of Human Services (OKDHS) administers the program through funding provided by a federal grant.

For the 2020-21 school year, schoolchildren must meet two important eligibility requirements:

  • Children must have been enrolled in a school district that participates in a federal meal program where meals are served at a school
  • Children must qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income and have turned in the free or reduced-priced meals application to your children’s school for 2020-21, OR be enrolled in a school that participated in the Community Eligible Provision, Provision 2 or Provision 3 federal program in 2020-2021.
You can find more information at the following link:

DHS assigns the case number for each card, if you have not received a card and think you qualify you can call the DHS hotline at 405-522-5050
 
If you need your child's STN or to know how they qualified based off their application you can contact Leslie Ashby at 580-924-7000 ext 1340 or email l.ashby@siloisd.org
