Food Assistance

Navigating the baby formula shortage

Due to COVID-19 related supply-chain issues, and a formula recall, you may have a hard time finding certain baby formulas on store shelves. For information on how to get formula during this time and access local resources, you can visit the Tri-County Health Department website, or the Jefferson County Public Health Department website. You can also find resources accessible at the state level on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website, and at the federal level on the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services website.

Colorado P-EBT

Apply for Colorado P-EBT by Sept. 15. P-EBT provides families with children eligible for free or reduced-price school meals with funds to help buy food. You can receive up to $279 per eligible child to stretch your food budget. If approved, you will get a P-EBT card with money on it for groceries. For those who have had an EBT card in the past for any Colorado program such as Food Assistance (SNAP), Colorado Works, or Old Age Pension, your money will be loaded to that card.
