North Carolina was approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program on April 20, 2020. This program will provide extra help buying groceries for the families of the more than 800,000 children who normally receive free and reduced lunch at school.

Families will receive approximately $371 in total P-EBT benefits per child, provided over two installments. Unused benefits will rollover month-to-month and must be used within 365 days. Families are able to use the P-EBT benefit to purchase food items at EBT authorized retailers, including most major grocery stores.

NCDHHS is continuously working to operationalize the P-EBT program, and recently updated its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) with new information.
