Applying for WIC benefits

To apply, call for an appointment at a local WIC office.

WIC benefits are available to women who are pregnant, just had a baby, and to children under the age of five whose household meets income guidelines. The sooner you apply, the sooner you can receive benefits that will prepare you and your child for a healthy outcome. Women who apply early in their pregnancy are more likely to have a healthy baby. Children who stay on WIC until the age of five, are better prepared and more likely to succeed in school.
