On Dec. 29, 2022, President Biden signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (the Act) (PL 117-328). The Act included significant policy changes for child nutrition programs, including the authorization of a permanent, non-congregate meal service through the Summer Food Service Program and Seamless Summer Option for rural areas with no congregate meal service and established the permanent Summer EBT Program (SEBT) beginning in summer 2024.

On Dec. 29, 2023, FNS published the Interim Final Rule: Establishing the Summer EBT Program and Rural Non-Congregate Option in the Summer Meal Programs. This webinar is geared towards state agencies and tribal organizations that are interested in implementing SEBT, whether beginning in summer 2024 or later.
