COVID-19 P-EBT Program (as of 5/7/2020)

North Carolina has received approval from the USDA to begin a new Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Program. This program will help families who have been impacted by school closings due to COVID-19 purchase food for their children.

The program provides benefits on an EBT card to North Carolina families whose children, under the age of 18, would receive free and reduced lunch as part of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act at participating schools.

P-EBT benefits will be issued from the Department of Public Instruction files for children enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. There is no application process to receive P-EBT benefits.
