Summer EBT for Children Comprehensive Final Report - Peer Review Plan
Authorized under the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (P.L. 111-8), the Summer EBT for Children (SEBTC) demonstrations rigorously test and evaluate the extent to which the use of electronic benefits technologies can be used to reduce food insecurity among children eligible for assistance through the FNS National School Lunch and Summer Food Service Programs. During the summer, when school is not in session, only about fifteen percent of eligible children are reached by these feeding programs. SEBTC is intended to bridge this gap.
