Congress authorized a new, permanent Summer EBT program
as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023.

Beginning in Summer 2024, families will receive $40 per month per eligible child – a total of $120 for the summer – on an EBT food benefit card. These benefits, combined with other federal nutrition programs including SNAP, WIC, and summer meal sites, help ensure children’s access to healthy food while school is out. We will update this webpage with more information as it becomes available.

For more information, please visit the NYS OTDA Summer EBT webpage.
