How much will I receive? When and how will I receive it?
Benefits for school-based P-EBT are calculated based on whether the school was in a distance or hybrid status for the majority of the month. Benefits will arrive in the mail on a P-EBT card issued in the child's name.
Please see the school-based P-EBT frequently asked questions page for more details.
P-EBT 5 and Younger
Those eligible for P-EBT 5 and Younger will receive benefits on their existing Minnesota EBT card.
Please see the P-EBT 5 and Younger frequently asked questions for more details and examples.
Children who are eligible for Summer P-EBT will receive one lump sum benefit of $430 for each eligible child. For most children, benefits will be issued in late July. Children who newly qualify over the summer will be issued benefits in the fall.
If a family received any school-based P-EBT benefits during the 2020-2021 school year, they will receive these benefits on their existing P-EBT card. If a family only received a 5 and Younger benefit during the school year, they will receive these benefits on their Minnesota EBT card.
Families who were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals, but who did not receive a P-EBT benefit during the school year (typically because their school’s learning model did not qualify) will receive a new P-EBT card mailed to them in late July.
