WIC is a state-run program that stands for Women, Infant, and Children. The program allows mothers to receive various food products through monthly benefits, plus nutritional education through counseling.
In addition to knowing how the program works, it’s important to know if you’re eligible. Those eligible for WIC benefits include:
- Pregnant women
- Mothers who breastfeed, up to 1 year after infant birth
- Non-breastfeeding mothers, up to 6 months after infant birth
- Infants up to their 1st birthday
- Children up to their 5th birthday
If approved, you will receive a WIC ebt card. This card is funded at the beginning of each month, and you can use those funds on any WIC-approved products. Here are some resources if you need to report a lost WIC card, or simply have questions on how to use your WIC benefits:
