New York State’s Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a new benefit that gives $420 per child in money for groceries to all NYC public school families. No sign-up is required. All families of NYC public school children, regardless of immigration status, income, or employment, will receive this money.
If you already have an EBT card or a Medicaid card, the money will automatically be added to your card.
If you do not have an EBT card, you will receive one in the mail. If you are concerned that the State of New York may not have your correct address, please call 833-452-0096
Families of non-public school students should contact the State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance at otda.ny.gov to learn if they are eligible.
