P-EBT Program

P- EBT Program

In response to COVID-19 public health emergency, a benefit program called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) has been developed for States to implement in assisting families that were receiving free or reduced lunches from their school.  The program was designed to help replace the cost of meals incurred by families as a result of the State eliminating public school gathering.

SNAP Households:

  • Parents will follow the same DCO business process that is in place by reporting their changes to Client Assistance or their local county office.
  • Non-SNAP Households:

    • Parents can call Client Assistance at 1-800-482-8988.
    • Parents can email their address change to pebt@dhs.arkansas.gov.
    • Please make sure that  all current addresses and phones numbers are on file with the District.
    Thank you
