P-EBT

Maryland's Department of Human Services is extending P-EBT benefits through September, and they will be loaded onto the cards that families already have. For families who haven't received a card yet, please email: PEBT@bcps.k12.md.us.

If you still have not received a P-EBT card and have questions, visit http://dhs.maryland.gov/p-ebt/ for information and answers. If your question isn't answered, complete the form on that page. P-EBT cards are not being distributed at the district office on North Ave.

All students in Baltimore City Public Schools are eligible for extra food benefits due to school closures. These benefits, called Pandemic-EBT, or P-EBT, are intended to help families in Maryland purchase food while schools are closed.

You may qualify to receive SNAP Benefits. Residents can apply for SNAP benefits online. Residents may also call the DHS Call Center at 1-800-332-6347 (TTY 1-800-735-2258), from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. To determine eligibility for SNAP, click here.
