Second Round of Pandemic EBT Benefits

Click here to read or download and print the information released from the Office of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Human Resources about the Second Round of Pandemic EBT Benefits Coming to Eligible Alabama Children.


Eligible households will receive EBT cards in the mail that can be used to purchase SNAP-eligible food items at stores that accept the EBT cards. The benefits are available for 365 days from the issue date and are non-transferable. Children may continue to access meals from local school districts while receiving P-EBT benefits. To gain P-EBT eligibility, households that experienced decreased income may apply for free or reduced-price meals at the schools their children attend.
