Homeschool P-EBT Benefits

Delaware's P-EBT Program provides food assistance to families with children who lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to school closures or reduced in-person attendance because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible children may receive P-EBT benefits for approved school days from the start of school year 2022-2023 through May 11, 2023, when the COVID-19 public health emergency expired.

Homeschool P-EBT provides food assistance to families residing in Delaware who have eligible children in their households and their children are homeschooled because of concerns about COVID-19.

Families can use their P-EBT benefits to buy eligible food items at stores and farmer's markets that accept SNAP EBT to help feed their children while schools are closed or have reduced in-person attendance.

Your child may be eligible for Homeschool P-EBT if:
  • Your child is being homeschooled during school year 2022-2023 because of concerns about COVID-19;
  • Your child previously attended a school that provided free or reduced-price school meals; AND
  • Your child was eligible for free or reduced-price meals at the last school that they attended.

Your child must meet all three requirements to qualify for Homeschool P-EBT.
