Have your children ate you out of house & home during this pandemic? Of course they have! The state of Kentucky still has over 117,000 children that were eligible to receive pandemic benefits still unclaimed. Pandemic EBT helps families with children who receive Free or Reduced-price meals at school buy groceries to make up for meals students missed during school closures this past spring.
Every child in Monroe County qualified for $313.50. If you receive SNAP, TANF, Foster/Kinship Care and/or Medicaid benefits your funds should have loaded on your card automatically in April/May.
