Colorado P-EBT Applications Are Live

Household food insecurity can have major effects on the health of each member of the family. Colorado families can now apply for Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT. This new food benefit is available to Colorado families with school-aged children. Pandemic EBT provides eligible families with funds to help buy food since schools were closed this spring due to the pandemic. Pandemic EBT is a program that Congress authorized this spring and is administered in Colorado through a partnership between the Colorado Department of Human Services and the Colorado Department of Education. You can use the outreach toolkit to learn about and promote P-EBT in Colorado. Materials are available in English and Spanish, and fact sheets and flyers are available in additional languages. If you have questions about the outreach toolkit or have additional promotional needs, please contact Hunger Free Colorado at P-EBT@hungerfreecolorado.org.
