The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides the Secretary of Agriculture authority to approve states’ implementation of a temporary program called Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT). P-EBT provides a benefit to all families eligible for free and reduced-price meals, whether through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or an income eligibility application, in the amount of $5.70 for each day a school is closed due to COVID-19. With schools closed through the end of the school year, this benefit is estimated to equate to $300 per child for a total of approximately $215 million for students and families in Ohio. Benefits are provided on an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card that is mailed to families, which can be used to buy food at local grocery stores. Children who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals or SNAP may receive this benefit. This includes all students who are enrolled at schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The program is administered by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The Ohio Department of Education partners with that agency to ensure children and families receive this important benefit. Ohio has received preliminary approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for implementation. Please note that schools serving meals during the ordered school-building closure may continue to operate pandemic feeding programs while participating in P-EBT. Households receiving the P-EBT benefit may continue receiving meals at feeding sites. Columbiana County JFS 330-424-1471 Mahoning County JFS 1-800-640-6446

This is a message from Mahoning County Public Health. This message was requested of us to passed along to our families. The United States, Ohio, and our Tri-County area are being impacted by the COVID-19 virus. The virus spreads through a community by close contact with those who are ill with the virus. We all have the potential to contract, carry, and spread the virus when not yet experiencing any symptoms to when experiencing mild symptoms. In order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 it is very important that we all do our part and follow these public health measures: • Stay at home when you are sick and contact your health care provider for a medical evaluation. • Wash your hands on a routine basis with soap and water for 20 seconds or more. • Refrain from touching your face. • Only leave your house for essential needs and supplies such as groceries. • Create a list when shopping, send one person when possible, and buy enough supplies for 14 days. • Check on those who are elderly and shop for their essential needs. You may drop items off on their door step and should not visit at this time. • Keep your children at home and prevent them from playing with others. Children can contract the virus and pass it to others. We are all impacted by this challenging event but by doing your part you will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as saving lives.
