Tyler Library Summer Reading Program
The Tyler Public Library is hosting a 2020 Summer Reading Challenge. Participants can earn a free book and other prizes by logging 12 hours of reading. Learn more about the 2020 Summer Reading Program, and other online programs for all ages, at www.tylerlibrary.com.
P-EBT Benefit for SNAP and Free and Reduced Lunch Families ONLY
Due to school closures from COVID-19, Texas received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide more than $1 billion in pandemic food benefits to families with children that have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals.
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) provides eligible families with a one-time payment for each child who previously received free or reduced-price meals. P-EBT works the same way Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits do and will help families get the food they need during the current pandemic. P-EBT will be administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Texas Department of Agriculture and Texas Education Agency.
Attached is a Letter that further explains the benefit, instructions on how to apply, and a general P-EBT flyer to give more information.
Please visit hhs.texas.gov/PEBT or contact Tyler ISD Food Services at 903-262-1107 with questions.
Thank you and have a safe holiday weekend!
