Who is eligible for WIC?
  • Breastfeeding women until their infant's first birthday
  • Infants and children up to age 5
  • Postpartum women up to 6 months after the pregnancy ends (includes miscarriage, stillbirth, adoption, and abortion)
  • Pregnant women

Pregnant women are encouraged to apply as soon as they find out they are pregnant. Dads, grandparents and foster parents raising children are also encouraged to apply on behalf of their children. Families that qualify for Medicaid, SNAP (Food Stamps) or TANF automatically qualify for WIC services and must show proof of enrollment in at least one of these programs. All other families must meet the income guidelines.
