Summer EBT Program

Summer EBT Program

Summer EBT is a new food support program that provides families $120 for eligible school-aged children to buy groceries when school is out for the summer. SEBT_Card 1

Summer is a time when many children lose the free and reduced-price meals they get at school, and when households might need a little extra help putting meals on the table. Most families will get these benefits automatically, but some parents will need to apply. The new program is in addition to free meals that kids of all ages can get at summer meal sites in their communities. 

How it works

  • Families will receive $120 per eligible child for the summer period. 
  • Benefits will be pre-loaded and a new Summer EBT card will be sent for each school-age eligible child beginning at the end of July or beginning of August.
  • The Summer EBT card will have the child’s case number and name listed on the front of the card.
  • Benefits can be used at authorized retailers, like grocery stores and farmers markets, to purchase healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, meats and other protein sources, whole grains and dairy.

K-12 Education Credit

K-12 Education Tax Credit

 

The Minnesota Department of Revenue offers two valuable tax benefits
for parents who purchase school supplies for their K-12 students:
the K-12 Education Credit and Subtraction.

These benefits can reduce parents’ taxes to increase their refund but is only available for those who keep their receipts. Purchases for most school supplies, field trips, and musical instruments for school band are eligible. Most Minnesota parents qualify for the K-12 subtraction, which reduces their taxable income. Parents under certain income limits may also qualify for the K-12 credit, which can refund up to 75% of their costs
– even for parents who do not owe any taxes.

          Notice of Potential Disclosure of Student Records

On May 14, 2024, Chief Judge Schiltz preliminarily approved a class action settlement between the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) and a group of students and/or their guardians represented by Minnesota Disability Law Center regarding compensatory education services for a group of Minnesota students described below:

All children (a) who are receiving or received special instruction and services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Minnesota Special Instruction laws from a local educational agency in Minnesota, (b) who became 21 years old after July 1, 2019, or will become 21 during the pendency of this action, (c) whose special instruction and services ended, or will end, on July 1 after their 21st birthday pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 125A.03(b), (d) whose special instruction and services ended, or will end, before they complete the graduation requirements to receive a regular high school diploma as defined in 34 C.F.R. 300.102(a)(3)(iv).

In accordance with that court order, MDE must disclose certain information about some former students in Minnesota whose birthdates are between July 1, 1998, through June 30, 2001, and who received special education services between July 1, 2019, and July 1, 2022, to the Claims Administrator: Continental DataLogix LLC. The Claims Administrator will use that information to identify former students who may fit the description above, and allow those former students to apply for compensatory education services. MDE plans to provide the Claims Administrator with the following information:

o    Names of former students: (i) whose birthdates are between July 1, 1998, to June 30, 2001, (ii) who received special education services from a Minnesota school district or local education agency sometime between July 1, 2019, and July 1, 2022, and (iii) whose special education instructions or services were ended before the student turned 22 years old

o    Birthdates of those same former students

o    The name of the school district last attended by those same former students

o    The last date of those same former students’ status at the school

Those former students will be notified by the Claims Administrator of their eligibility and provided with a claims form. Any former student who fits the description in the first bullet point above and who does not want MDE to share the information described above with the Claims Administrator, must inform MDE that they object to MDE’s disclosure. Please email kosettlement.MDE@state.mn.us for instructions on how to object and to let MDE know that it should not provide that information. All objections should be received by MDE before Monday, July 15, 2024.

Additional information about this settlement is available at https://education.mn.gov.

Additional inquiries can be made to MDE’s Data Practices Compliance Official, Adam Heuett, at the email above, or at 651-582-8267.
