Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer Program for Children (Summer EBT) will officially launch in summer 2024. Summer EBT was established as a permanent program when P-EBT ended in 2023. Summer EBT provides grocery-buying benefits to low-income families with school-aged children when schools are closed for the summer.
Tennessee has opted into the program for 2024, which will support families struggling with hunger during the summer months. Tennessee has approximately 644,000 children who would be eligible to receive the Summer EBT benefit in summer 2024. However, the State of Tennessee has said that the program will not be adopted in 2025 and beyond.
Join the Summer EBT Alert Group (formerly P-EBT) to learn more and stay tuned for action to bring Summer EBT to TN in 2025.
