Because we are a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) district, meaning that every child eats breakfast and lunch for free, families in our district qualify to receive a one-time payment of up to $302 for every child in their household. If you received SNAP benefits in March, you will not have to fill out an application and the payment(s) will be automatically loaded to your EBT card. We have now been advised by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Nutrition Services that any other family not receiving SNAP benefits in March will need to fill out this online application to receive payment, or you may print this application and mail it to the address listed at the bottom of the application. Again, all of our families do qualify for this payment because of our CEP status. You will just need to fill out an application if you wish to receive payment. For Community Eligibility Provision Schools (CEP), DESE will send the application to DSS upon verifying the student is enrolled in the applicable school district.
If you have any questions, please call 855-373-4636.
