Families to Receive Food Assistance from the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program

All Council Bluffs Community School District students who were enrolled last school year prior to March 16, 2020, will receive food assistance benefits through the Families First CoronaVirus Act. This is part of the program to provide families with benefits due to the school closure when our students lost access to Free and Reduced School Meals. All students will receive a debit card in the amount of $307.80 to be used for food. All Council Bluffs students are automatically enrolled to receive a one-time benefit because the school district provides free meals to all students as part of the Community Eligibility Program.
