Pandemic EBT Program and Free/Reduced Lunch Application

Dear IB Families,

The Illinois Department of Human Services has created a flyer with information about the Pandemic EBT (electronic benefit transfer) program - click here to view the flyer.  

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) launched the Pandemic EBT (electronic benefit transfer) application for families on May 1 at https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access/.  P-EBT is a new special benefit that can help families buy food for their school age children who would normally receive National School Lunch Program (NSLP) free or reduced-priced meals when schools are in session.

Families that currently receive SNAP benefits do not need to apply for P-EBT benefits.  These additional P-EBT benefits will be loaded into Illinois LINK EBT accounts along with regular SNAP benefits.

Families who do not currently receive SNAP benefits but do have children who receive NSLP free or reduced-priced meals will need to apply directly with IDHS.  The fastest way for families to receive benefits is to complete the application for P-EBT available online (Click “Apply for Benefits” at the link.) 

In addition, we encourage all families who qualify to fill out the free/reduced lunch application - click here for the application.  If you have any questions, please email Lisa Webb at lwebb@ib327.com and please mail the completed application to:
