DTA has kindly shared updated data on the number of P-EBT cards (individual cards issued to children) in all MA cities and towns. Most eligible families were issued nearly $399 in total P-EBT benefits, either on their DTA EBT cards or through the P-EBT card mailed to families. DTA sent an email yesterday to SNAP partners with important information to remind families about P-EBT, see attached PDF.
