Who is eligible for WIC?

WIC is open to many incomes and families. If you or your children receive Medicaid, SNAP or TANF, you already meet the income eligibility guidelines for WIC and your application can be processed faster. Even if you do not receive these programs, you may still qualify for WIC by meeting the income guidelines for your household. Participating in other benefit programs does not affect the amount of WIC benefits you receive.

Number of Household Members*Gross Monthly Household Income**
1$0 up to $2,322
2$0 up to $3,152
3$0 up to $3,981
4$0 up to $4,810
5$0 up to $5,640
6$0 up to $6,469

*A pregnant woman’s household can be increased by the number of infants she is expecting. For more than six household members, or if you have any income questions, call the clinic.
** Income can also be determined on a weekly or biweekly basis.

    If you apply online, a WIC team member will contact you to set up an appointment.
