SUN Bucks (Summer EBT)

Summer Grocery Benefit for Kids

SUN Bucks is a new grocery benefit available across Ohio where eligible school-aged children can get $120 per child to buy groceries during the summer. Families can receive SUN Bucks on top of other benefits like SNAP and WIC.

How to Get SUN Bucks

If you’re already enrolled in benefits like SNAP, TANF, or Medicaid your school-age children will automatically be enrolled in SUN Bucks. Also, if your child attends a school that offers the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program (NSLP/SBP), and your household income meets the requirements for free or reduced-price school meals, your child may automatically be enrolled in SUN Bucks.

If you are NOT automatically enrolled, you can apply for SUN Bucks directly. To qualify, you must meet income limits and other requirements.

Once you’re enrolled, SUN Bucks may be automatically added to your SNAP account, issued as a separate electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card.
