A student can become newly eligible by completing a School Year 2023-24 application before Aug. 31, 2023.

No. Students eligible for Oregon Expanded Income Guidelines (EIG) do qualify for Summer 2023 P-EBT. They are, by definition, federal paid category students. P-EBT is for federal free or reduced-price category students.
Starting August 31, 2023, a one-time benefit of $120 will be added to the existing P-EBT card from Summer 2022 for all eligible schoolchildren. Newly eligible children will receive new cards and subsequent disbursements will occur regularly until September 29th.
The main source of data is the May 2023 student enrollment data from ODE (~511K students). There are two main sources for data: one is based on May 2023 student enrollment data from ODE the second is SNAP data from ODHS. The addresses where the notices and cards will be mailed for approved students depends on the source. If there is data overlap, the latest P-EBT system address will be used if it has been updated more recently then the SNAP mailing address; if the P-EBT address wasn’t updated and we did not match the child to a SNAP case, the residential address from May 2023 provided from the ODE average daily membership file will be used.
Try steps 1-4 below first. If this still doesn’t resolve your issue, please contact us at email@example.com for assistance, along with your availability for a 15-20 minute live session to troubleshoot. The P-EBT Call Center will also be available for support starting Monday, March 27, at 8 a.m. Pacific Time.
