Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) Appeals Process

As of late July, $1.3 billion in P-EBT food benefits have been distributed to more than 3.5 million children across California. That is great progress -- and there is more work to be done.

The State has now completed all P-EBT eligibility determinations. Families can appeal decisions about eligibility. The deadline to appeal denied applications is 11:59pm on Monday, August 17, 2020.
