The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday it will apply for the next round of Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer for children on free or reduced meals at their schools.

The benefits application, through the USDA Food and Nutritional Service, is for August and September.

The federally funded program is designed to support children who can no longer receive meals at school because of remote learning. During the first round of transfers, more than 85,000 children in Nebraska benefited from the program.

The Division of Children and Family Services is working with the Nebraska Department of Education to implement the next round of benefits, HHS officials said.

More information will be provided about eligibility and disbursements dates in the near future, the department said.
