P-EBT: Oct/Nov P-EBT info/resources and updated list of CEP districts

DTA shared they issued P-EBT on 1/11 for October and November to a group of students who were not included in the 12/30 issuance (because their districts were delayed in getting data to the Department of Early and Secondary Education). 

Deadline TODAY to sign onto public charge letter, SNAP 101 Training!

It has been a very hard and shocking week, and we hope that this weekend you have time away from the news with loved ones.

Action Alert: Override the Governor's Veto of Full MH Adult Dental

In an incredible victory, the FY21 Conference Budget included a line item restoring full MassHealth adult dental coverage back to the same level of coverage before significant cuts were made in 2010! The line item included $19 million of funding. Unfortunately, the Governor vetoed this provision. We need your help to restore it.
