!!!!!!Update!!!!!! Pandemic EBT benefits

PLEASE NOT DATE CHANGES IN RED

Dear Parents and Guardians.

You may have heard about a new program authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) called Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer or P-EBT for short. This program intends to provide financial assistance to families of children grades K-12 eligible for free or reduced-price school meals who have lost access to food due to the school closures caused by COVID-19. The financial assistance will be distributed to eligible families on new or existing Colorado EBT cards. The average P-EBT benefit is $5.70/child per day or up to $279 per eligible child, retroactive to when school initially closed. Huerfano School District Re-1 participates in the National School Lunch Program under the Community Eligible Provision, which provides free lunches to all students, meaning all Huerfano RE-1 students grades K-12 may be eligible for P-EBT.

If your family is already participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and possesses an EBT card, the P-EBT benefits will automatically be loaded onto your card within the month of July 2020. If your family is not currently enrolled in SNAP benefits, you must complete an application to receive P-EBT.

Receiving these benefits will not affect your immigration or public charge status. All families who are eligible for P-EBT may receive it, regardless of immigration status. P-EBT is a pandemic emergency benefit based on free or reduced-price school meal eligibility, and similar to other benefits that the Department Homeland Security has stated that it is excluded from consideration in public charge. Household information that is used to determine eligibility is protected under both federal and state data privacy practices.

To successfully complete the P-EBT application, you will need your child(ren)’s State Assigned Student ID (SASID) number

Upon approval, an EBT card with the qualifying amount will be mailed to you. To access the P-EBT application available mid-July 2020 visit: https://www.colorado.gov/cdhs/p-ebt.

For more information about P-EBT, please visit Colorado Department of Human Services’ Frequently Asked Questions webpage – https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdhs/p-ebt . If you have further questions, please contact and a representative will respond.

If you have other questions or need help, or are interested in applying for P-EBT, contact Tara Burke at or 719-695-0095 to obtain the required SASID information.

Sincerely,

Huerfano School District RE-1
