Atlanta, GA – The Georgia Department of Human Services’ (DHS) Division of Family & Children Services has received approval to issue summer 2023 P-EBT benefits to K-12 students who were eligible for free or reduced-price meals at a National School Lunch Program school during the 2022-23 academic year.

Families with eligible students, including high school seniors who graduated in May 2023, will receive a lump-sum benefit issuance of $120 per student within the next few months. Exact timing will depend on when the student’s school submitted their data to DHS.

These summer P-EBT benefits will be issued on the same P-EBT card previously used or on the household’s current EBT card if the student is in a SNAP household. Newly eligible students who are not part of a SNAP household will receive a P-EBT card within four weeks of their benefit release date.
