Dear Parent or Guardian,

Your household may be eligible to receive Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to buy food. P-EBT is for children 5-18 years old who received SNAP food benefits for the month of March 2020 and children up to 21 years old who are certified for free or reduced-price meals at school in Texas during the 2019-20 school year. Children that attend a school that offers free meals to all students (Community Eligibility Provision or Provision 2) are also eligible. Palo Pinto Elementary is a Community Eligibility Provision school.

The online application for P-EBT is now open. Please review the criteria to see if you need to apply to receive these benefits. The application link is provided below.

Do I need to apply for P-EBT?

Families that DID NOT get SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020

• Yes, you will need to apply.

Families that DID get SNAP benefits for the month of March 2020

• You do not need to apply for children ages 5-18. Benefits were loaded onto your existing SNAP card by May 22.

• If you have children under 5 and/or between the ages of 19 and 21, you will need to fill out an application for those children. Fill out an application here: https://yourtexasbenefits.com/Learn/PEBT (the URL is case-sensitive)

• If you get SNAP benefits and your child is approved for P-EBT, we will put funds on your current Lone Star Card.

P-EBT is a one-time benefit for families issued through an EBT card (like a debit card). Families receive up to $285 per eligible child. You will have one year from the date the benefits were issued to use your P-EBT benefits. P-EBT benefits are non-transferrable.

Mustang Merit Honorary Scholarship


Palo Pinto ISD is proud to offer a scholarship opportunity for current graduating seniors who plan to attend an institution of higher learning full-time or enlist full-time in the armed forces immediately following graduation (summer or fall semester). There are criteria to apply. Even in light of school closures due to COVID-19, applications are DUE no later than the 2nd Monday in April at 3:00pm. If mailing the completed application & required documents, it must be received in the district by the deadline. Late applications will not be considered. Though the plan is for scholarship recipients to be notified by the 2nd Friday in May, contingent upon funds and the submission of quality applications, due to recommendations of social isolation, the scholarship committee will be attempting to meet in order to fulfill that notification timeline. However, recipients may be notified after the 2nd Friday in May.  To determine eligibility and to apply, click here.  Good luck to all of our Mustang alumni applicants!

Congratulations to the following Mustang Merit Scholarship recipients for 2020!  We wish all Palo Pinto ISD graduating alumni the best of wishes for a bright future!
