WELCOME TO SUMMER EBT FOR CHILDREN
The State of Michigan is proud to be one of the states awarded funding for the Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer for Children (SEBTC) program, or Summer EBT for Children. The purpose of the program is to help families feed their children well-balanced meals during the summer months when school meals are not readily available. The SEBTC program uses a Bridge Card for electronic benefit transfer (EBT) similar to the WIC system.
This website provides all the information families and grocery vendors need to successfully use the SEBTC program. Be sure to check out the important and useful resources on the For Families or For Grocery Vendors pages.
Children were selected to receive either a $30 Food Package or $60 Food Package as their monthly SEBTC benefit.
NOTE if your family also receives WIC benefits you still need to keep your WIC appointments during the SEBTC program period.
.Unused June and July benefits will carry over to the end of summer. All 2016 SEBTC benefits will expire on 9/5/2016.. Please redeem all your benefits. If you are having issues pinning your card, please contact 1-888-678-8914. If you have questions about SEBTC, please call 1-888-265-3291. Participation in SEBTC is Voluntary.
