Dear Hoopeston Area Parents or Guardians, The State of Illinois is approved to provide new Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) benefits to all eligible Illinois students. Families in our district qualify for P-EBT because we are a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). You do not need to complete an application to receive these benefits. Please note that citizenship status does not affect eligibility. What action needs to be taken now? At this time, it is very important for all families to ensure that the mailing address on file at your enrolling school is current. A complete mailing address will be needed to receive the P-EBT issuance in the near future. What is P-EBT? The purpose of P-EBT is to provide food assistance to families with students who would have received free or reduced lunch while attending school but are not receiving these meals in school due to COVID-19 restrictions. Who is eligible for P-EBT benefits? The following students are eligible for P-EBT benefits for School Year 2020-21. Students must be enrolled in an eligible NSLP participating Illinois school and; Students must be determined eligible to receive free/reduced lunch for the 2020-21 school year or enrolled in a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school and; Students are P-EBT eligible on school days in which a reimbursable meal was not provided to the student to consume at school. When will I receive the benefits? The Department of Human Services should begin issuing new P-EBT cards to all known eligible students in March 2021. Please note that all eligible students will receive benefits for all eligible school days, back to the beginning of this school year. If you need to change the address on file for your child(ren) please log into your InfoNow parent portal to update the address. If you have questions concerning P-EBT, please contact Chrissy Coffman at 217-283-6663. Thank you for your time to this matter.
