2113

DPHSS continues distribution of the Supplemental Assistance Program (SNAP) Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT).

P-EBT Cards distribution for registered parent(s)/guardian(s) whose child/children attend a GDOE School will take place Monday – Friday (excluding GovGuam holidays) from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at DPHSS Bureau of Economic Security, located on the 2nd floor of the Ran-Care Building in Tamuning, across from National Office Supply.

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.

P-EBT Card Distribution Requirements:

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

  • Written authorizations are 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.

  • 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’s 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 with the form to the location indicated on the P-EBT Distribution Site.

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