HSD has all necessary data and information from the PED to issue the P-EBT benefits for October and November. At this point in time, the issuance is with HSD and they are working internally to see what date they can issue these benefits. We will let you know a solidified date of P-EBT issuance when HSD notifies the PED. At this point there is nothing further that SFA’s need to do other than notify families that the benefit will be coming in the near future. Thank you for your continued patience as our main objective was to get our plan approved and things should go rather quickly moving forward.
New students and the students that were or still on EBT SNAP benefits, a new P-EBT card will be mailed to them on or before October 22nd. The students that have an existing P-EBT card from the prior P-EBT issuance and still qualify for P-EBT should have had the benefits loaded on the existing card the weekend of September 26th.
If a family lost or needs a replacement EBT card they can call the FIS number at 1-800-843-8303 and will be required to give their card number and some additional verifying information. Please let families know to continue to be patient and limit calling HSD or our PED number unless it is absolutely necessary.
