The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program offers nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and nutritious food for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum women, infants and children up to five years of age.
Do you qualify for WIC? Applicants must meet all of the following eligibility requirements:
You must live in the State in which you apply, but do not need to be a U.S. citizen.
You must be one of the following:
• A pregnant woman
• An infant or child up to five years old
• A mother of a baby up to six months old
• A breast feeding mother of a baby up to 12 months old
You must have income at or below an income level or standard set by the State agency, or be determined automatically income-eligible based on participation in certain State-administered programs, including SNAP, Medicaid, and TANF.
• Medically-based risks (designated as “high priority”) such as anemia, underweight, maternal age, history of pregnancy complications, or poor pregnancy outcomes
• Diet-based risks such as inadequate dietary pattern
Nutritional risk is determined by a health professional such as a physician, nutritionist, or nurse, and is based on Federal guidelines. This health screening is free to program applicants.
