Georgia Dept of Human Services Issues P-EBT to Youngest SNAP Recipients

This week, the Georgia Department of Human Services’ Division of Family & Children Services began issuing P-EBT benefits to SNAP-enrolled children ages 0-5 and those 5 years of age who turned 6 during the covered period of August-December 2022. To be eligible, children had to be receiving SNAP benefits during these months.

Families with eligible children will receive $26.94 per child for each month their child received SNAP benefits during the covered period.

The P-EBT benefits will be issued on the household’s current EBT card if the child is currently receiving SNAP. Those who no longer receive SNAP will have the benefits loaded onto their household’s previous EBT card. If a new EBT card is needed, please visit or call 888-421-3281. Benefits will be issued using the schedule below.

    What about the rest of the children older than 6? I had heard we were supposed to be getting summer P-ebt for all school aged children. Is it true or not? Some of us really need the extra.

      Well I really feel that Ga Snap benefits program can careless about seniors in Ga cutting benefits from $200 to $23 is fucking ridiculous i feel if you are going to take from older people like that why bother, if they stop thinking about unnecessary crap and people personal life and lifestyle things will be a hell of a lot better

    I’m confused because I just went and read what the USDA said and it is school age children who are supposed to be getting the P EBT stamps, so what is GA doing??? I don’t qualify for regular EBT and m parents with big kids should have been got them.
