You have reached the California Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Project Office.

Our office does not determine eligibility for benefits and does not issue benefits, and we do not have access to EBT cardholder and case information. Questions about your benefits or about a specific EBT case should be directed to your local county public assistance office.
