DENVER (CBS4) – Some Colorado families with students will start getting electronic food benefits. It’s part of a new program announced by Gov. Jared Polis.
The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program started last week. Families will be reimbursed for the free and reduced-price meals students missed after schools closed in March.
Polis says 360,000 students are eligible. Each household with an eligible child can receive $5.70 per child per school day on a Colorado EBT card. It will amount in a one-time payment.
