Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer (Summer EBT)

Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer (Summer EBT) program will start in the summer of 2024.This federal assistance initiative aims to ensure that children have access to nutritious meals during the summer months when school meal programs are not operational.

What is Summer EBT?
Summer EBT provides eligible families with funds to purchase food during the summer break. These funds ($40 per month/$120 per child) are loaded onto electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards, which can be used to purchase eligible food items at authorized retailers.

Who is Eligible?
Families with school-age children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year are eligible for the Summer EBT program.

How to Apply?
If you think you are eligible, families can apply for the Summer EBT program by approval of an application for educational benefits completed online through Linq Connect.

Additional information can be found here: or by calling 651-748-7529


Application for Educational Benefits

Families must reapply every August; the benefit period from the first day of school until the last day of school.

Every ISD 622 family should complete an Application for Educational Benefits (Free or reduced meals) on the LINQ Connect website. The application helps us identify families who need assistance, and also may provide families with discounted rates on athletics and activities fees, and testing fees, among others. Completed applications also allow District 622 to receive funding for classroom programming. This funding helps us stretch our local dollars further.

Families must complete a new form each school year. Also, families who have completed an application and experienced a change in household income or size are encouraged to complete a new one.

The online application process is safe, secure, private, and available anytime, anywhere!

To find our district search, ISD 622 North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District (Minnesota).

Qualifying families can get discounts on classes and swimming lessons from District 622 Community Education.
