Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Card
Please see the Department of Human Services (DHS) P-EBT website for all inquiries, eligibility information and updates. Baltimore City Schools does not process, issue, or distribute P-EBT cards or payments. Parents can contact DHS in the following ways:
If you received a P-EBT card already, don’t throw it away, as additional amounts will be placed on these cards. If you believe your P-EBT card had the incorrect amount or may have been mailed to an incorrect address, please complete the DHS Customer Inquiry Form. Additionally, please ensure that your address is accurate at your child’s school. If you have newly enrolled or transferred to City Schools, please ensure that your child’s school has an accurate mailing address.
