Homeless Program

  • Coming Soon in Summer 2024!

    Summer EBT is a new program to help families buy food for their children during the summer break from school. Starting in Summer 2024, families will get $120 for each eligible child to buy groceries during the summer months.

    Summer EBT webpages in English and Spanish are now available with answers to common questions about the new food benefit program. The application will open soon, so keep checking for updates.
