In most cases, you don’t have to do anything to receive the Summer P-EBT. If you received P-EBT in the past, the benefit amount will be added to the card you used for P-EBT during the school closures. That may be your household EBT card, if you were receiving SNAP at the time, or a separate card that was sent to you specifically for the P-EBT. If you no longer have your P-EBT card, you can request a new one through DTA-Connect
Families who are eligible for Summer P-EBT will receive a payment of $120 per K-12 child on July 25.

The amount of those benefits will depend on the number of absences. Those payments will be made starting June 25. Learn more about retroactive P-EBT at https://www.map-ebt.org/k-12
