Status of P-EBT for the 2020/2021 School Year
Oregon has submitted a plan to provide P-EBT benefits to eligible students retroactively back to October 2020. Initial P-EBT issuances will start going out by the end of May. Retroactive benefits will be broken out over the first 2 payments. Dates are contingent on final approval from the USDA, Food and Nutrition Service.
A new system is being developed to issue 2020/2021 P-EBT benefits.
