The Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) announced on Tuesday plans to issue Summer Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits.
Summer P-EBT benefits are limited to students who receive free or reduced-price meals from the National School Lunch Program by application or directly certified by DHR as SNAP/TANF.
Households with eligible students who received P-EBT benefits previously will access Summer P-EBT benefits on their existing EBT cards. Those who are new to the National School Lunch Program will get EBT cards in the mail.
Qualifying households will get $120 for each participating student.
Please carefully read this section…
If your child is presently receiving a free/reduced meal, you do not need to complete another form.
The benefits are expected to start rolling out in mid-to-late summer
Eligible families are encouraged to monitor dhr.alabama.gov
for updates, including information about a timeframe for the arrival of benefits. Support specialists are available to answer questions about P-EBT by phone at 1-800-410-5827 and online at dhr.alabama.gov/food-assistance/
each Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
