Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits are for children who receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Distribution of benefits has begun and will continue through June, and into the summer due to the large number of eligible children and schools participating in the National School Lunch Program across the state.
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps low-income people pay the cost of heating their homes.
If you are eligible, you may receive one regular HEAP benefit per program year and could also be eligible for emergency HEAP benefits if you are in danger of running out of fuel or having your utility service shut off.
