EBT Card Information

Dear PS 101 Families,

Please see the article below for information about EBT Cards.

As per the article, “New York City public school families, regardless of income, will soon receive a new allotment of food benefits of at least $391 per child, according state officials. Known as the Coronavirus Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer, or P-EBT, the federal program aims to help families whose children typically receive free meals at school — and since New York City public schools have universal meals, all families are eligible.”

Please be advised PS 101 has no connection to EBT and cannot assist you with this.
You may call 1-888-328-6399 for more information.



Pandemic EBT (PEBT) funds

Dear PS 101 Families,

As of June 14, 2021, the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) began issuing Pandemic EBT (PEBT) funds to cover the cost of school meals lost due to COVID-related school closures throughout the 2020-21 school year.

You need to request a replacement card ONLY if you received P-EBT funds for Spring 2020 (prior to June 14, 2021) through a P-EBT card OR a Medicaid CBIC, used the funds, AND lost or discarded the card.

For Assistance:
You may need to call EBT Customer Service 1-888-328-6399. For more information visit: Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) | OTDA – NY.gov

*If you still have a NYS-P-EBT card or the Medicaid CBIC you used before, you do not need a replacement* *If you were ineligible for P-EBT funds for Spring 2020, you do not need to request a replacement*

Please note that fund distribution is still ongoing and your card may not have been funded yet.
