P-EBT Information for NCCVT Families Eligible for Benefits

Division of Social Services (DSS) provided P-EBT benefits for August and September 2020 to households with eligible students.  After benefits were issued there was an increase in the per day amount. Households will receive the difference between the new P-EBT benefit amount and the old P-EBT benefit amount for August and September 2020. Delaware also received federal approval to issue P-EBT benefits for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.  Eligible households will receive more information in the coming weeks on P-EBT benefits for October 2020 through June 2021 soon from DSS.
