P-EBT Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Schools and Districts
To be eligible for P-EBT, K-12 students must qualify for free or reduced-price meals and their school must also meet certain requirements.
Students qualify for free or reduced-price meals in one of three ways:
- Receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Tribal TANF) benefits OR
- Enrolled in a Community Eligibility Provision school (listed below) OR
- Approved for free or reduced-price school meals through the Application for Education Benefits at the child’s school.
In addition, their school must meet certain learning model requirements for each month of benefits. Please refer back to the P-EBT main page or frequently asked questions for more details.
Below is a searchable list of Community Eligibility Provision schools where all children receive free school meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). This list was updated on March 3 to include certain Provision 2 schools whose students do not need to submit an Application for Educational Benefits in order to be eligible for P-EBT.
