Aug 26: Summer P-EBT Update

Virginia Department of Social Services Statement on Summer 2022 P-EBT

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has authorized the Virginia Department of
Social Services to provide Summer P-EBT to K-12 students. All school-age
children who attended a school last year, school year 2021-2022, that was
approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) or who were
determined eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals are eligible for Summer
2022 P-EBT.

All eligible students enrolled during the last month of school year 2021-2022,
including new high school graduates, can expect to receive a one-time summer
benefit of $391 beginning on August 25, 2022 on their previously issued P-EBT or
SNAP EBT card.

If you do not have an existing P-EBT card, or your information has changed since
you last received P-EBT, a card will be mailed to the address provided in your
student’s school record within 7 to 10 business days. To request a replacement
for a lost or discarded P-EBT card, contact ConnectEBT at 1-866-281-2448 or
