Summer EBT Program to Provide Grocery Assistance for Low-Income Colorado Families

According to Chalkbeat, starting in June, hundreds of thousands of low-income families in Colorado are set to receive aid through the Summer EBT program. Each eligible child will receive $120 to help cover grocery expenses during the summer break, benefiting families whose children attend public schools from preschool to 12th grade. With over 300,000 children expected to benefit, the program aims to fill the gap left by the absence of free school meals during the summer months. Funded largely by the federal government, this initiative was made possible in Colorado through legislation passed during a special session last November. Families receiving public benefits like SNAP or Medicaid, or whose children qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, are eligible for the Summer EBT cards.

Accessing Summer EBT Support: Guidelines for Colorado Families

Colorado families eligible for the Summer EBT program will soon receive crucial support to combat food insecurity during the summer months. Upon receiving a preloaded card in the mail, families can access the $120 per child allocation by setting up a personal identification number. For those who did not receive an eligibility letter, contacting the Summer EBT Support Center is recommended. It’s essential for families to ensure their child’s school has updated address and guardian information, along with updating address details for SNAP, Colorado Works, or Medicaid cases. While children benefiting from Summer EBT can still access free summer meals at local sites, proactive steps are crucial to ensure seamless access to this vital assistance program.
