The Official WIC program is available to low to moderate income pregnant women, recently delivered women, breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk. Fathers can also bring their children to apply for WIC. You may apply for WIC if you are working or unemployed. Check the Income Guidelines Table to see if you are eligible for WIC. This website was created for women looking for WIC information and locations. We are also working towards adding other locations and services that may help out women.

Participation in the WIC Program has no effect on eligibility for entitlement programs such as TANF, SNAP, and Medicaid. Applicants who present a notice of eligibility from one of these programs are automatically considered to be income eligible for WIC.
Applicants must be determined to have a "nutritional risk" by a WIC professional staff (nutritionist, nutrition education specialist, nurse or LPN) in order to participate in the program. Some examples of nutritional risks include abnormal weight gain during pregnancy, history of high risk pregnancy, growth problems, below normal iron levels or similar problems.
