Georgia DHS Retroactively Issues Summer 2022 Benefits to Eligible Children

Today, the Georgia Department of Human Services’ (DHS) Division of Family & Children Services began issuing a third round of 2021-22 P-EBT benefits, this time covering the 2022 summer months for eligible children. SNAP-enrolled children ages 0-5 and 5 who turned 6 during the school year, as well as K-12 students who participated in the National School Lunch Program, will receive the one-time $391 benefit issuance.

These summer benefits – covering the months of June and July 2022 – will be issued to eligible children based on the following schedule.

Children who are SNAP recipients will have the benefits loaded onto their current head of household’s EBT card. Children who are no longer receiving SNAP will have the P-EBT benefits loaded to their head of household’s previous EBT card, provided the state could match the child’s identity from a previous year. Eligible non-SNAP students will receive a P-EBT card or, where applicable, have the benefits loaded onto a prior P-EBT card if they received benefits in a past P-EBT issuance. If this is the first benefit issuance to an eligible child, a new card will be provided.
