What information is required if I have to apply for SEBT via the online application at OTDA.NY.gov/SummerEBT?

The application requires information including name of each child applying for Summer EBT benefits; date of birth; school name; names and income information for all adults in the household; current address, phone number, and email address. You have the option to include the child’s NYSSIS ID and/or local student ID on the application. Applications will be processed more quickly and accurately if one or both numbers are included. The NYSSIS ID or local ID will expedite the process to determine if the applying children attend an NSLP-participating school. Summer EBT outreach materials will let parents/guardians know that their NYSSIS ID will expedite an application. You will not need to provide any documentation to apply. Some families may be asked to provide proof of income later.
