P-EBT for 0-5 Year Olds on SNAP

Will kids 0-5 years old get P-EBT?


USDA has announced that funding is available for P-EBT for children 0-5 years old who were receiving SNAP while child care centers were closed due to the pandemic, and DCFS is developing a plan to distribute those benefits to eligible families. We do not expect there to be an application process. Under current proposals, P-EBT benefits for eligible children 0-5 years old would be loaded automatically onto their household’s regular SNAP card. Stay tuned for more information.
