Family Eligibility:

Remember, many eligible families will not have to take any action to enroll in the program if they are receiving other benefits, but some families may need to apply. 

If Your Student Currently Receives SNAP, OWF, or Medicaid: 

If your student is enrolled in SNAP, Ohio Works First cash assistance, Medicaid, or has an approved application for free or reduced-price meals, and their family earns 185% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) or less, your student will be automatically enrolled in the Summer EBT program. You do not need to fill out an application. Please note that receiving free meals at our schools alone does not qualify students for automatic enrollment; they must meet one of the above criteria.

Is My Child Eligible?

If your student will not be automatically enrolled based on the above criteria, but you believe your children are eligible, you can apply for Summer EBT. For more information on if your student is eligible and to apply, if needed, visit
