S-EBT Program

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 authorized a permanent, nationwide S-EBT program for eligible families beginning in 2024. The state of Minnesota (MN) has submitted the S-EBT plan to implement this new federal program in summer 2024 to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the plan is pending approval. The administration of the S-EBT program will be a joint effort between the MN Department of Education (MDE), the MN Department of Human Services (DHS) and MN Information Technology Services (MNIT). The S-EBT program provides families with school-aged children eligible for free or reduced-price school meals at $40 per month per child ($120 total) during the summer months to purchase healthy foods with funds placed on EBT cards.
