Food Assistance

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.
