TN has been approved for a new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT). Families of children who receive free or reduced meals at school may receive financial assistance during the months of March, April, and May due to COVID-19 school closures.
Parents who already receive SNAP or TANF benefits currently, do not need to apply. Parents who do not receive SNAP benefits, but whose children do qualify for free or reduced school meals, will need to apply for P-EBT online at: https://www.tn.gov/humanservices/covid-19/p-ebt-and-covid-19-faqs.html beginning June 15. The application period will end June 29, 2020.
If you need assistance or have questions, please call the TDHS hotline at 1-833-496-0661.
