Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)
Apply On-line June 8 – July 31, 2020
What is P-EBT?
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a temporary food benefit available to Minnesota families with children who would have received free or reduced-price meals if schools were open. Families with eligible children will receive a one-time payment of $325 per child on a new or existing EBT card to help fill the gap created by a loss of school meals.
Who is eligible for P-EBT?
Families with children ages 5 - 18 as of September 1, 2019, are eligible for P-EBT benefits if:
  • Their child’s school is closed due to COVID-19; and
  • They were receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) benefits as of March 18, 2020; or
  • Their child was receiving free or reduced-price school meals during the 2019-2020 school year; or
  • Their child is enrolled in a school that offers free school meals to all students.
 How will I get P-EBT?
Families with eligible children ages 5-18 who were receiving SNAP and/or MFIP as of March 18 do not need to apply. A one-time payment will be automatically issued to their household’s current Minnesota EBT card on May 30, 2020. 
Families who received free or reduced-price school meals in the 2019-2020 school year or attended a school that offers free school meals to all students – but who were not receiving SNAP or MFIP benefits as of March 18 – must complete an online application at mn.p-ebt.org between June 8, 2020 and June 30, 2020. Eligible families will receive a Minnesota P-EBT card in the mail within ten days with instructions to activate the card. This card provides access to P-EBT funds.
Questions can be directed to the P-EBT Hotline, call 651-431-4050 or 800-657-3698, or submit questions here. The P-EBT hotline is available Monday - Friday, 8 am - 4 pm
Support offered at the P-EBT hotline includes:
  • Assistance applying (Limited English Proficiency, accessibility issues)
  • Eligibility requirements or general P-EBT questions
  • Status of application
