P-EBT Program for Families

The Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS) in partnership with the Georgia Department of Education (DOE) has launched an online application for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. This program will provide extra help to families of children who would normally have received free or reduced school meals from March to May, 2020. If your child(ren) received free or reduced price lunch as of March 2020, they’re  eligible to receive Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)  

Families will receive a one-time allotment of $256.50 in P-EBT benefits per child. For more information about P-EBT and other frequently asked questions, visit

Families who do not currently receive SNAP benefits will have 60 days from the date the application opens to request benefits.
