P-EBT Food Assistance Benefits for Families

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) food assistance benefits will go to Michigan families with students ages 0-26 that are eligible for Free or Reduced-Price School Meals. This includes families currently receiving Food Assistance Program benefits, as well as those not currently enrolled in the program. No application is necessary for eligible families to receive P-EBT benefits.

  • If the student was already receiving SNAP benefits, they will automatically receive the P-EBT benefits on their card.

  • If the student is eligible based on a Free or Reduced-Price Meal the pre-loaded P-EBT card will come in the mail and will be in the oldest school aged child’s name, not the parents name. Keep the card for ongoing benefits you may receive. MDDHS is processing cards in batches thru mid-May.

  • The combined benefit amount for March/April is $193.80 per child and will be available by the end of April.

  • The combined benefit amount for May/June is $182.40 per child and will be available by the end of May.

  • To activate the card call the phone number on the back of the card. You will need the EBT card number on the front of the card, your zip code, and the date of birth of the oldest child in your household. You will need to set a four-digit pin number.
