About WIC

WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) is for pregnant and postpartum women, infants and children up to age 5 who are determined to be at nutritional risk and meet income guidelines. You may be eligible for WIC services if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

  • Are you pregnant?
  • Are you breastfeeding a baby?
  • Have you had a baby recently?
  • Do you have a child under the age of 5?

Income
The income guidelines (PDF), which are 185% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, are:

  • $30,044 annually for a household of 2
  • $37,777 annually for a household of 3
  • $45,510 annually for a household of 4
  • $53,243 annually for a household of 5

Online Prescreening Tool
The WIC Prescreening Tool usually takes less than 15 minutes to complete and can be used to determine if you may be eligible for WIC benefits. It is not an application for WIC.
