Atlanta, GA – Today, the Georgia Department of Human Services’ Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) began issuing a second round of 2021-22 P-EBT benefits to the state’s youngest SNAP-enrolled children. For children to qualify, they must have been under age 6 at the start of the 2021-22 school year and enrolled in SNAP from August 2021 to May 2022.
Eligible children will receive the P-EBT benefits automatically via their head of household’s card. Families will receive just over $29 dollars per child for each month their child was eligible. The benefits are divided into two rounds, one for the fall semester and a second for the spring semester.
Fall semester benefits were issued in late September and included the months of August, September, October, November, and December 2021. The second round covering the spring semester months of January, February, March, April, and May 2022 will be issued today through Sunday, October 30, based on the following schedule.
