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.
Office Information: Contact Whitley County Health Department (WIC Program or Health Department) or another location serving your area to see if you qualify for WIC. You will be asked to provide proper ID, proof of residence and information about your household income to help determine if you meet program guidelines.
