You may qualify for the Wisconsin WIC program if:

  • You live in Wisconsin
  • You are pregnant, breastfeeding or a new mother
  • You have an infant or children under 5 years of age
  • You or your children have a health or nutrition need
  • You have a household income (before tax deductions) that is less than or equal to WIC income guidelines. Many working families qualify. A pregnant woman counts as two family members:

    July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017

Income Guidelines are revised every July.

You may be income eligible for WIC if you currently receive Kinship Care, W-2, Food Stamps, and/or Badgercare, including Healthy Start. You also may be income eligible for WIC if Food Stamp eligibility has been cancelled. Prospective participants are encouraged to call for an income screening.

The WIC Program uses the same income criteria as free and reduced price school lunches.

Fathers, guardians or foster parents may apply for WIC for their children.
 

Call the WIC program nearest you: 608-754-3722/Janesville or 608-362-1566/Beloit for assistance in locating a WIC program. 

At your appointment, a WIC nutritionist will review you or your child's health history. You will also discuss what you and your children eat.

If you are eligible, you will receive nutrition information and counseling, learn about other services, and receive an eWIC card to purchase healthy, nutritious foods.
