Summer 2023 Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Benefits

The District issued summer P-EBT benefits to eligible families on the last day of July, 2023. Eligible children will receive the federally approved flat rate of $120 per child.  

District of Columbia (DC) children are eligible for Summer 2023 P-EBT benefits under the following circumstances: 

1.       A student was enrolled, during the month of June 2023, in a school that participated in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in the 2022-23 school year AND: 

  • the school participated in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP); 
  • The family applied for Free and Reduced Priced Meals (FARM) before June 30,2023 was determined eligible by the School Food Authority (SFA), and eligibility was updated in the Student Information System (SIS) by June 30,2023; 
  • Directly certified for FARM (which includes students receiving SNAP and TANF). 

School Year 2021-22 P-EBT Benefits for children under the age of 6 

Children who were under the age of 6 on Sept. 30, 2023 and were part of a household participating in SNAP will receive a monthly benefit of $50.36 per month they were enrolled in SNAP between September 2022 and May 11, 2023, when the Public Health Emergency ended. This amounts to $478.42 if the child was eligible for the maximum time possible.  

Because DC offers Pre-K to children as young as three, there are some children who will receive both a school year and summer benefit. This will only happen for children under 6, who were part of a household participating in SNAP during September 2022 – May 11, 2023 AND the child was also enrolled in a qualifying school and met eligibility criteria during the month of June 2023.
