Kentucky Approved to Provide Summer P-EBT Benefits
Kentucky has been approved to provide summer P-EBT benefits as offered by the USDA. Please note the following important aspects of the approval:
- All eligible students will receive the same total benefit amount of $375 for the covered summer period. The benefit will be a one-time deposit to the existing cards that should occur in August.
- Summer P-EBT is an “extension” of the 2020-2021 P-EBT benefit, so all students that ended the school year as eligible will automatically receive the benefits, including students that graduated. Students that are newly enrolled during the summer for next school year are NOT eligible.
- The predominant learning model that was used at the end of last school year will have no impact on eligibility, i.e. students that were In-Person or Hybrid at the end of the school year will receive the full benefit amount.
