WIC: Changes under COVID-19

T + T


There are no changes to WIC eligibility requirements.

Applicants and participants can visit a WIC clinic, if they are well and their WIC clinic is open, click here for locations (call to confirm they are open).

All appointments, including applications and recertifications may be completed over the phone with the clinic.

WIC cards for new participants can be mailed or offered as a “drive up” option.

New York State WIC is not suspending any WIC cards. Scams informing families that cards are being suspended are not true. Additional details can be found here.
