Mississippi P-EBT for Families
The Mississippi Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) for our district's eligible families are set to be distributed between late September and late October. Please use the P-EBT hotline for any questions at 1-833-316-2423.
Mississippi has authorized to provide benefits to eligible families for both the 2020-2021 school year AND Summer 2021. These funds are meant to help families with additional food cost they may have experienced due to Covid-related school closures during last school year. ALL students who received free or reduced priced lunch are eligible for both distributions.
Benefits are estimated to be mailed between late September and late October.
- Summer benefits will be issued first because more families are receiving Summer benefits.
- Approximately 2 weeks later, School Year 2020-21 benefits will be loaded onto the same cards.
- A MS P-EBT card will be mailed to each eligible child with their name on it.
- Both benefits will be loaded onto the same cards (one per child).
