How to Apply for P-EBT in Georgia

Authored By:


If your child was eligible for free or reduced price school lunches during the 2019-2020 school year, you are owed benefits.


This is a one time payment to make up for the lunches missed while schools were closed in the spring.


Families who are eligible will get $256.50 in P-EBT per child.


If your family already gets food stamps or SNAP benefits, you do not have to do anything to get this payment. It will automatically be credited to your account.


If your family does not currently get SNAP benefits, but your child was eligible for free and/or reduced price lunch, you will need to submit an application.


For more information and to apply go to


The application is very short, but you must have your child’s Georgia Testing ID number.


You must apply by September 25, 2020.


Once your application is approved, a P-EBT card will be mailed to you within 3- 4 weeks along with instructions explaining how to activate and use the card.
