Is My Family Eligible for WIC?


WIC is for:WIC

  • Pregnant women.
  • Moms breastfeeding a baby under 1 year of age.
  • New moms who had a baby or were pregnant in the past 6 months.
  • Infant or child younger than 5 years of age.


WIC welcomes all parents and caregivers. If you are a dad, grandparent, foster parent or any caregiver of a child under 5 years of age, you may get WIC for your child.

You or your child will need to have a nutritional and/or medical need. The WIC Staff will be able to find one by checking you or your child’s height, weight and iron level and asking you some health and diet questions.

WIC is open to many incomes including working and non-working families. If you are on Medicaid, TANF or SNAP, you are automatically income eligible. If you do not qualify for these programs, you may still qualify for WIC by meeting the income guidelines for your household.

Your household’s gross income (the amount of money you earn before anything is taken out for taxes or other deductions), must be at or below the amounts in the table below. Members of a household live together and share expenses.

If you are pregnant, you can add one more person to the size of your household.
