For new SNAP applications, a weekly systematic process is in place to review applications that are approved in the last week. P-EBT benefits will be created for any eligible household (contains child in school that has not already received a P-EBT benefit).
See the charts below for May and June availability dates for active SNAP households.

Due to a system error, some customers while in Manage My Case saw the option to use the "DSNAP" button and may have mistakenly clicked on it to apply for DSNAP benefits. DSNAP is not a P-EBT benefit and is not a benefit that is available for the customer to apply for currently. The DSNAP module is only being used by central office staff for the P-EBT application process. A client notice will be mailed to these customers explaining the error and telling them on how to apply for P-EBT benefits.
