Summer EBT 2024 Deposit Dates: Check Eligibility Criteria & Payout

S-EBT will be a permanent, national initiative that launches in the summer of 2024. It is the outcome of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, a federal statute that was passed in December 2022. It provides additional assistance, such as SNAP, to families with kids to assist with summertime food expenses. S-EBT is not a new program in Connecticut; in fact, we were among the first to pilot it in 2011. S-EBT improves access to wholesome food and reduces food insecurity.

Eligibility Criteria for Summer EBT 2024

  • When children live in households that receive SNAP, they are immediately deemed eligible.
  • Summer EBT does not have any citizenship requirements, and it will not be subject to the public charge rule.
  • The entire household income must be at or below 185% of the federal poverty threshold in order to qualify for Summer EBT.
  • Families will need to certify that their monthly income does not surpass 185% when submitting their applications for Summer EBT.
