Important! The MRPA does not manage the P-EBT program, but works hard to make information about the program available to MD Resource Parents.  We do not have the necessary information to assist with specific questions about benefits, and want to be sure you have no delays on receiving the information that you need, so please reach out to the Department of Human Services with those specific questions.

 

Great news – Maryland will provide P-EBT benefits for the month of September!

  • Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits are intended to help families in Maryland purchase food while schools are closed due to COVID-19.
  • Students enrolled in free or reduced-price school meals are eligible for P-EBT benefits.
  • All students attending schools with the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) are eligible for P-EBT benefits.
  • P-EBT for September will be provided to students attending schools that are offering virtual instruction. Students in schools using a hybrid model are also eligible and their P-EBT benefit amount will be calculated based on the number of days they attend school remotely. Students in schools that are offering 100% in-person instruction are not eligible for P-EBT benefits in September.
  • Each eligible student will receive $5.86 per day that schools are closed in September.
  • Students with SNAP will receive P-EBT directly on their EBT cards.
  • Students eligible for P-EBT, but not receiving SNAP, will have September benefits added to the same P-EBT card they received earlier this summer.
  • If this card is lost, call the EBT call center or submit an online ‘customer inquiry‘ to request a new one.
  • All September benefits will be distributed before September 30, 2020.
  • Students that received P-EBT earlier this year, but have since graduated from high school, are not eligible to receive P-EBT for September.
  • Families can call the Maryland P-EBT Hotline at 1-833-330-PEBT (1-833-330-7328) and they can also complete a “customer inquiry form” if they need help.
