JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Department of Social Services has extended the deadline for families to apply for Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to August 20, 2021.

A child may be eligible for P-EBT if the school was not doing in-seat learning or had reduced hours at least five school days in a row due to COVID-19. The P-EBT benefit amount is based on the school’s report of time that was not in-seat learning. If most of the month was not in-seat learning, the monthly P-EBT benefit is $129.58, if only some of the month was not in-seat learning, the monthly P-EBT benefit is $77.75.
