DPHSS will continue distributing Supplemental Assistance Program (SNAP) Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Cards through Saturday, September 11. The P-EBT is federally funded and offered through the Food and Nutrition Services of the United States Department of Agriculture.

P-EBT Cards distribution is as follows:

P-EBT DISTRIBUTION SCHEDULE

September 11

10 a.m. –  4 p.m.

Bureau of Economic Security (BES)

Ran-Care Commercial Building – Tamuning 2nd Floor

(Located across National Office Supply)

Register at tinyurl.com/pebtguam

(Appointments only due to limited parking and lobby capacity)

Parents who visited the troubleshooting table at the initial site at the Micronesia Mall and were informed they will be contacted about their children’s cases do not need to schedule an appointment. You will be notified when you can pick up your child’s card.

School-aged students are eligible for P-EBT if they:

  • were eligible to receive free or reduced-price school meals under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP); or

  • received such meals because their school is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) but did not receive meals at school due to COVID-related closures or virtual learning.

Requirements for P-EBT distribution are as follows:

  • Valid picture ID such as a Driver’s License, Guam ID, military ID or Passport. Photocopies of IDs are not accepted.

  • Written authorization is not acceptable.

  • You must be the registered parent/guardian for your child with GDOE. If you are not the registered parent/guardian, a P-EBT card WILL NOT be issued to you. If your child is an active member in another SNAP household, then a card will be issued to the head of household in that SNAP case.

  • P-EBT Cards are issued to Child Protective Services (CPS) for children identified as a ward of the court or under the care of CPS. They will be contacting families directly.

  • If the parent/guardian name is not listed, a DPHSS P-EBT Student Verification of Enrollment Form will be issued at the distribution site. This form will be taken back to the child’s respective school, where GDOE staff will complete and validate the form. Parents will then return the form to the troubleshooting table at the distribution site.

  • Individuals, who have legal and/or temporary custody or Power of Attorney (POA), please ensure the guardianship is recorded and reflected in GDOE’s PowerSchool system.
