Summer EBT



Beginning in summer 2024, families will receive $40 per eligible child during the summer months of June, July, and August. Summer EBT is for students who are eligible to receive free and reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). Students who are eligible for the program include children who:

  • Attend an NSLP/SBP participating school and have been certified as eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.
  • Attend an NSLP/SBP participating Community Eligibility Provision school and are directly certified.
  • Attend an NSLP/SBP participating school but are not certified either by application or direct certification and are certified by an application.
  • Do not attend an NSLP/SBP participating school but are able to be directly certified.

Families with children who attend a NSLP and SBP school who are currently receiving free or reduced-price meal benefits should contact their school about completing an Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals. The same application that is used during the school year will also be used to issue benefits for the S-EBT program to provide money on an EBT card for your children for the summer months when school is not in session.

Please contact the hot-line at (406) 444-2501 or email if you have questions or wish to opt out of the S-EBT program benefits.
