The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved Viriginia for a second round of Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) funds through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020.
The Virginia Department of Social Services and the Virginia Department of Education will release the P-EBT benefits by the end of September.
Most households will receive remote PEBT on the same account used for original PEBT and will not receive a new card. Households that are newly eligible for PEBT or could not be matched to the spring PEBT data are receiving new PEBT cards via the US mail. The new cards are being issued on a rolling basis and not all will be received in the mail this week. Additional cardstock was required and the target date for all households to receive the cards has been moved to November 13, 2020.
