NJ issued $99 P-EBT for Aug-Sep for schools that are closed or partially remote. Is that the case?
It's officially open.
Maybe some programs are closed.

Itís for the kids in school that you are eligible for school lunches- I guess this is from the summer when they didnít get the lunches. They gave this once before (June? July?) for when schools were closed in early COVID.  then it was around 400 per eligible child.

But in this case, the family received the bonus ~$400 per child back in June(?) on their EBT account and not as a separate debit card. Why the change?
Also, this new debit card was only received for one child not the others.

It's NJ P-EBT for Aug-Sep, the question is why are kids who's schools are fully open getting it?

Update:
Text went out from the big schools in Lakewood to expect such a card for each child.

Still strange that it's not just being added to people's EBT balance.

I got one today with money for 2 kids on it. When I called to activate it asked for oldest childís bday. (Name on card) so seems there should be one card for multiple children.
Canít answer on the EBT part since I donít get that.

I got a card today (NJ) and it seems to be a regular debit card, unlike last time, when it was a SNAP card.

NJ- I sent 2 kids (ages 2,4) to a CHS childcare for the 2019-2020 school year where they were given lunch through the federal lunch program. I thought I should have gotten the EBT for them. I didnt receive. Anyone have any insight on this?

Can this card be used for nonfood purchases?

All Children who receive free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program are eligible for P-EBT food benefits
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-cuomo-announces-22-billion-food-assistance-school-children-new-york-state

The first payment will be issued by the end of June and include P-EBT food benefits for each month between September 2020 and March 2021 that an eligible child qualified for food benefits.
The second payment will be issued by the end of September and include P-EBT food benefits for each month between April and June 2021 that an eligible child qualified for food benefits.

Children whose schools reported that their in-person school attendance was reduced by 1 to 12 days during a month, will receive $82 in P-EBT food benefits for that month.
Children whose schools reported that their in-person school attendance was reduced for more than 12 days during a month, will receive $132 in P-EBT food benefits for that month
Children whose schools reported that their in-person attendance was not reduced during a month due to COVID will not receive a benefit for that month.

P-EBT in NY (https://otda.ny.gov/SNAP-COVID-19/)
  • Students who had their in-person attendance to public school in the New York City area reduced due to the pandemic will receive their first benefit for the months of September 2020 through March 2021 between now and late July.
  • Eligible public-school students in the rest of the stateóall areas outside the five boroughsócan expect to receive their first benefit beginning in late-July.
  • Eligible children attending non-public schools such as private and charter schools will start to receive benefits starting in September.
There is now a NYS School List to check the P-EBT distribution status for individual schools. https://pebtschoollist.powerappsportals.us/

Nearly all heimish schools were open this year, so there will be no P-EBT for the 2020/2021 School Year.
