Georgia DFCS is offering a one-time allotment of $256.50 to all students in high-risk schools as a part of a Pandemic-EBT program. Because all Laurens County Schools participate in USDA's Community Eligibility Program, all SY2019-2020 Laurens County students will qualify for this allocation. USDA's Community Eligibility Program is the program that allows for free school meals to be served to all Laurens County School students.
1.). If you are a SNAP recipient, you will automatically receive a P-EBT card...you do not have to apply.
2.) If you are not a SNAP recipient, but had a 2019-2020 Laurens County School student, you may apply via site on attached infographic.
