      Hi Sharon, I cant say for certain, but I would think they would still receive the Summer PEBT. The PEBT…if you’re referring to EBT benefits kids get for missing school during the pandemic…that is a benefit they already qualified for during the school year. Texas (and many other states) are just late paying out the Summer PEBT. Call the Texas PEBT number to double check though. 800-777-7328
