Through the Kentucky Department of Education and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Henry County Public School families can apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT). This financial benefit of $313.50 is meant to subsidize the meals families lost during the mandated school closure. Because many students in our district qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, HCPS is classified as a Community Eligible Provision (CEP) district. Due to this classification, EVERY student in our district can apply for the P-EBT program.
Enrolled students who receive SNAP benefits on an active EBT card will automatically receive additional funds for P-EBT on their cards. The guardian or parent does not need to do anything to receive this additional funding.
Enrolled students who receive Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or who are in foster care, will automatically receive a P-EBT care in the mail with instructions. The guardian or parent does not need to do anything to receive this supplemental benefit.
