More Pandemic EBT benefits ok’d

Oct 18, 2021

Families with children in school or in childcare can receive Pandemic EBT food aid covering summer 2021 following the U.S. Food and Nutrition Service’s approval of the Commonwealth’s plan. This follows FNS’ approval in April of Commonwealth’s plan to provide P-EBT benefits through June 2021. Congress provided Pandemic EBT benefits to the Marianas in the continuing resolution last October. P-EBT helps pay the cost of meals that students would have received if they had been attending school in-person.
