Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, provides food-purchasing assistance to families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals and attend a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program. This benefit is being distributed because students missed essential meals while schools were closed due to the pandemic this spring. Families can receive up to $279 per eligible child to supplement their food budget, regardless of immigration status.
Households that were receiving SNAP in March, April, and May may not need to take any action; their P-EBT benefits may have automatically been loaded onto their existing EBT card. Families with eligible children who did not receive SNAP during those months, or who did not receive the automatic payment, need to apply online to receive this benefit.
