More from NYS site:

Children ages 3 and 4, who attend pre-kindergarten and who receive free or reduced-price lunch are also eligible to receive P-EBT benefits.

...Young adults with disabilities who are ages 19 through 21 who are still in school and who receive free and reduced-price meals are also eligible to receive P-EBT food benefits

I only got for my five-year-old not for my Three-year-old. It was deposited today.

Quote
Eligible students already participating in SNAP will receive the Pandemic-EBT on their householdís existing Families First card.

All other Pandemic-EBT eligible households will be mailed a P-EBT card. Human Services expects these benefits to be issued no later than June.


whats your question if you sign up for school? you don't need to sign up for snap to get this

Is your 3 year old enrolled in a lunch program?

Do you have SNAP?
In NY children ages 5-18 on SNAP will receive P-EBT even if not enrolled in a lunch program.

It's not retroactive, but you will get it for the months you're enrolled for.

So For ages 5 to 18 itís automatic If you have snap even if youíre not enrolled in the lunch program and for 3 to 4 years old you have to be enrolled? That would make sense why only my 5 yo got

As long as you have reduced meals in schools (lunch program) You will get it

See above for some links to the state sites outlining how it will work

P.S. this is for New York, New Jersey may be a bit different
