WIC Benefits

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides Federal grants to States for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Annual WIC enrollment numbers represent infants and children under 5 who are receiving benefits as of April 30th of each year. Annual WIC enrollment percentages are the number of infants and children under age 5 enrolled in WIC divided by the total population under 5.

Eligibility: To be eligible on the basis of income, applicants' gross income (i.e. before taxes are withheld) must fall at or below 185 percent of the U.S. Poverty Income Guidelines.
