The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 created a new program that will provide additional food security to families with school age children.  This program is called The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) and most families with children attending the Mount Morris Central School District during the start of the pandemic are eligible for this program.  The payments for this federal program will be distributed in three groups.  

  1.   Families that receive SNAP and/ or TA benefits should have already received the P-EBT food benefits. Those benefits were issued directly to your existing EBT card and added to your SNAP balance. 
  2.   Families with children who receive Medicaid will have their P-EBT food benefits issued either to the Medicaid Common Benefit Identification Card (CBIC) of the parent or to the CBIC of the oldest child in your household.
  3.   All other eligible families will receive a letter containing their P-EBT card from the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (NYS OTDA) in the mail sometime between the end of July or mid-August.
