Roosevelt Families will Receive the NYS Food Benefit Card

The New York Sate Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) completed payments of P-EBT benefits in September 2020. The recent Federal appropriations Continuing Resolution authorizes Pandemic EBT benefits for the 2020-2021 school year for students on the days that they are not in school, either because their schools were closed or during the times that they were learning remotely on a modified “hybrid” learning model. The Pandemic EBT program will continue to be administered by the State. Further information can be found below in the “Additional Information” section, and we will continue to provide updates as more detailed information becomes available.
