Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer Program

The Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) have partnered to provide food benefits to families with children who receive free and reduced lunch. The Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) will provide a one-time allotment of funds to help prevent food insecurity to families. Those who receive SNAP benefits will see the benefits loaded on to their EBT card by mid-July. Those who are not currently receiving SNAP benefits will need to apply for the program.  The applications will be available in July. Please click here to see information on the program and how to apply. For more information about P-EBT in Georgia, visit https://dfcs.georgia.gov or call 877-423-4746.

 

The Family Needs Team continues to partner with Catholic Charities Atlanta to meet the needs of our families during this time. CCA has program that helps eligible families find and apply for benefits when needed. If you are eligible and need assistance applying for SNAP (Food Stamps) benefits please call 404-710-2733 or email ssierra@ccatlanta.org.

Many of our supporters have asked how they can help Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis.  The most immediate need is for our school families who are struggling.  Kindly consider making a gift to the newly established Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit Family Fund so that we may help school families through this crisis.  Providing families with temporary financial relief to meet their rent, grocery, and utility bills will help ensure that our students remain committed to their studies and will provide much-needed security in these unstable times.
