Public school students enrolled in a non-CEP county or non-CEP school can only qualify for P-EBT benefits if they qualify for free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program. Benefits can only be calculated on days when remote/virtual instruction is taking place. In-person learning days are not days for which P-EBT benefits can be added.

Paid students in these specific counties or schools will not qualify for P-EBT, based upon federal rules established by Congress.
