Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer for all Letcher County Students

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) and the Kentucky Department of Education are partnering to provide food assistance to families who have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency.

The P-EBT program provides households an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card with benefits equal to the value of breakfasts and lunches a student was not able to receive during the days schools were closed. Households can use these benefits for grocery items eligible under the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).

All Letcher County Schools students are eligible to receive this benefit, but you must apply online.  Click the Info image below to open a flyer that has detailed information on the application process and clickable links to the application site.
