DHHR and WVDE have received approval from USDA to issue Summer P-EBT benefits to eligible student and non-student populations. This will be a one-time Summer feeding benefit valued at $391 per eligible child. Summer P-EBT will be deposited onto the child’s WV P-EBT card. The state will not utilize the Mountain State EBT card for Summer P-EBT.
Eligible students are those that were enrolled during school year 2021-2022 in a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program as of May 31, 2022 and qualifies for free or reduced-price school meals.
Households can expect to receive the one-time benefit during the month of August 2022. An exact date will be announced at a later time.
All eligible households will receive a letter with important information before the benefit is issued.
