Sun Bucks

The New Mexico Student Success and Wellness Bureau has launched its Summer EBT (SUN Bucks) program. Students who qualify will receive a SUN Bucks Card valued at $120.

Qualification for this program has been pre-determined by the state, however, families who do not receive the benefit are welcome to apply to participate.

Students receiving/meeting the following eligibility requirements do not need to apply and are automatically enrolled to receive a SUN Bucks card with the $120 benefit per student.

– Directly certified students that are currently participating in:

- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP),

- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF),

- Medicaid in some cases (not all categories of Medicaid qualify)

- Or, Students who are Homeless/Runaway, Foster, Migrant, and Head Start

All other students that are not categorically eligible, including students attending a CEP school will need to apply to participate in the SUN Bucks EBT program.


– Each family will receive a single physical card that will be loaded with benefits for all qualifying children in the household.

– Cards should be saved after SUN Bucks have been used. In the event the state issues additional funds at a later date, those funds would be loaded onto existing cards.
