Benefits are on an EBT card (works like a debit card) that allows you to purchase healthy food for the summer.
To qualify for Summer EBT for Children, your child must meet the following requirements:
- Enrolled in a participating school district in grades Pre-K – 12th grade
- Receive free and reduced meals at school
Participation in this program will have absolutely no impact on any government assistance that you and your child may currently receive.
Information provided by you on the consent form or any records obtained for this program will be kept confidential as allowed by law and will be used only for this project.
Once approved, Summer EBT cards will be mailed to the address you provided along with a list of participating stores and a food card (shopping list) that will help you identify approved food items.
If you have any questions, please call Chickasaw Nation SEBTC at (580) 272-1178 or (844) 256-3467 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
