PANDEMIC ELECTRONIC BENEFITS TRANSFER (P-EBT)
Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) is a program to help you purchase food for your child(ren) who is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals at a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or School Breakfast Program (SBP). Summer P-EBT extends benefits during the summer months following a school year during which there was a COVID-19 public health emergency.
New Jersey received P-EBT approval for children under the age of 6 enrolled in SNAP between September 2021 – June 2022 and for summer 2022. In addition, summer 2022 P-EBT has been approved for students in grades K-12 in the 2021 – 2022 school year who were eligible for the National School Lunch Program.
P-EBT for September 2021 – June 2022 for children under the age of 6 in SNAP households was added to the Families First card from July 30, 2022 through August 12, 2022. A benefit of $42.02 per eligible child was added for each eligible month.
Summer P-EBT benefits for children under the age of 6 and for school-age students are expected to be issued in September and continuing into October.
