The Oregon Department of Human Services began distributing EBT Pandemic food assistance benefits on June 1st to enrolled Lincoln County students who already receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. These additional funds were added to their existing Oregon Trail Cards. Non-SNAP students will receive their benefits on an Oregon Trail Card in the mail mid-June to mid-July.
As of June 9, the P-EBT team had issued more than $50 million to over 130,000 students statewide. If a family does not receive their benefits or cards by August 15, they should reach out to the Pandemic-EBT team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-945-6481.
