Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) Customer Inquiry Form
Thank you for your interest in the P-EBT program.  The government program is designed to provide food assistance to children who lost access to Free and Reduced-Price School Meals (FARMS) due to school closures as result of COVID-19. The Maryland Department of Human Services (DHS)  is collaborating with the Maryland Department of Education (MSDE) to implement this program.

School Year (SY) 2021-2022

Standard for P-EBT Eligibility for Students

School children are eligible for P-EBT benefits if they are eligible for free or reduced price meals, but are unable to receive those meals due to reasons listed below:

A child’s school is closed (including any delayed start or early closure to the school year), or the school is operating with reduced attendance or hours
A Child is absent from school due to a COVID-19 related reason
A Child is enrolled in a virtual learning program established by his or her school district in effort to mitigate the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you will be receiving a P-EBT card for the first time (example: your children received benefit on your SNAP EBT card last year, children under six and school children who never received P-EBT benefit before), you will receive a new card for each child.

Please visit to  read the answers to frequently asked questions, and get the most up-to-date information about the P-EBT program.

Most of the answers to your questions can be found on the P-EBT website. Please use this inquiry form only if you did not find the information that you are looking for on our P-EBT website.  Please refrain from sending multiple inquiries.

Reconsideration Request:  For families attending schools using the 5 consecutive day threshold as a proxy for a COVID-related absence, the family may make a claim with the state for any COVID-related absence that is less than 5 consecutive days. The family will attest that the absent days are COVID-related, and the state will verify with the school that the absence was excused.  See MD P-EBT state plan
