OREGON DISPERSES FIRST WAVE OF PANDEMIC SCHOOL MEAL BENEFITS

News Release from Oregon Department of Human Services
Posted: June 8th, 2020; 11:17 AM

(Salem, Ore.) – One month ago, Oregon received approval to implement Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) benefits for students who had access to free meals through a school participating in the National School Lunch Program. This includes schools where all students receive free meals.

Families of 130,975 students will receive a total of $50,294,400 from June 1 – June 9. This initial allotment is to students who currently receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and have been determined eligible by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE).

The next release of funds will begin in mid-June and continue through July. This release will reach eligible students who do not receive SNAP benefits and any students who were not identified on the first release who are in a SNAP household.

“This is the first time Oregon has implemented P-EBT,” stated Dan Haun, Self-Sufficiency Programs Director. “More than 150 staff will be issuing benefits and mailing cards to non-SNAP households to get these benefits to families as quickly as possible. Nutrition is critical to health and helping these families get the food they need is top priority.”

How the benefits are dispersed.

Families currently receiving SNAP benefits will see the P-EBT benefits on their Oregon Trail Card.
Families who previously had an Oregon Trail Card, including families who previously received Summer EBT benefits, will have the benefits loaded onto this card.
Families can find out if a card is still active by visiting https://tinyurl.com/y5e3vy4v.
Families who are not currently receiving or have not received SNAP or Summer EBT benefits will receive an Oregon Trail Card in the mail.
Eligible non-SNAP households will receive a letter and a new card if there is no active one on file.

Most Oregon public school districts have submitted student information to ODE. ODE then sends this information to Self-Sufficiency Programs for processing. Parents can find out if their school has responded online at https://bit.ly/2BtVhD5, and check to see if DHS has issued benefits for your district by visiting https://oralert.gov/benefits. Updates to this list will begin in mid-June so families have a better idea of when they will receive their P-EBT card.

If a family does not receive their benefits or cards by August 15, they should reach out to the Pandemic-EBT team at [email protected] or (503) 945-6481.

We want to keep you informed about COVID-19 in Oregon. Data are provisional and change frequently.

• Samples for 141,497 patients tested negative.

The 93 new confirmed and presumptive cases bring the state total to 4,662. The new COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (7), Hood River (7), Jackson (2), Jefferson (2), Lincoln (6), Malheur (1), Marion (11), Morrow (1), Multnomah (28), Polk (3), Umatilla (6), Wallowa (1), Wasco (1), Washington (15), Yamhill (2).

Oregon’s 162nd COVID-19 death is a 70-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on April 8 and died on May 9 in her residence. She had underlying medical conditions.

Oregon’s 163rd COVID-19 death is a 50-year-old man in Multnomah County, who tested positive on April 23 and died on May 29 in his residence. He had underlying medical conditions.

Note: One case previously reported in Deschutes County was determined not to be a case; the county case count has been adjusted to reflect this.

Oregon’s weekly testing summary for the week ending June 5 shows that 20,539 people were tested, above the minimum weekly goal of 15,000 outlined in the COVID-19 Strategic Testing plan for Oregon.

As of week’s end, the cumulative positive testing rate was 3.1 percent of tests performed. This is lower than the national average of 11 percent. The decreasing rate of positive test results reflects the success of Oregonians in following the Governor’s stay-at-home order, along with increasing testing statewide.

Protesters calling for police reforms and an end to discrimination against black Americans marched and gathered in Portland again Saturday.

Several groups gathered at various spots, including Terry Schrunk Plaza and Lownsdale Square, eventually marching to Pioneer Courthouse Square, where they listened to a series of speakers.

Another group had gathered by 8 p.m. along the fence surrounding the Justice Center, chanting “Black Lives Matter!” Over the course of the next few hours, some in the crowd hurled various objects at officers behind the fence. Police eventually declared the gathering a civil disturbance, and after 11:30 p.m. moved toward the protesters and cleared the crowd from the fence.

Mike is still MISSING~ROSEBURG, OREGON... Please help my friend find Mike. He is an Alaskan Husky, black and white. He could be anywhere now. Missing since July 23, 2019 from NW Aviation Dr, Pacific HWY. There were hotels near by and freeway, maybe someone picked him up? Mike and I got lost in the Alaska tundra for a week. We were eventually found and taken out by helicopter. I took a job here in Roseburg after living in Alaska for 4 years. It was a bit of a culture shock for us both and he was very uneasy since we got here. We had been living out of my van and one night there was a loud gunshot-like noise near Home Depot and it scared him and he took off and I haven't seen him since. I can't describe how much this dog means to me. We've been through so much and he helped save my life. I'm just devastated. Please help keep an eye out for my boy. He had a green collar with tags but might not be on him now. He is micro-chipped. He is so well behaved and mellow mannered and it could be super easy for him to be with someone. Any tips that help lead to him being reunited with me will be rewarded, no questions asked. (660)-973-1959. I really appreciate everyone's help. Love to you all.
May God bless all of you who tried to help my husband Scott Wartena. He was a wonderful man who loved doing service for others and that is what he had been doing that day. He earned all the stars in his crown. I will always love my Scott as will his family and friends.
Still have a KGAL sticker on my car window from the '70s. I rarely have the top up which probably helped preserve it. I've had the car since 1977.
