To qualify for WIC, you must:

          • Live in Utah. You do not have to be a US citizen.
          • Have a family income less than WIC guidelines.  A person receiving Medicaid, the Family Employment Program (TANF) or Food Stamps already meets the income eligibility requirements.
          • Have a special nutritional need.
          • Be in one of the following groups:

            • pregnant
            • breastfeeding
            • a woman who has just had a baby
            • an infant
            • child less than 5 years of age

If you qualify, you will be given vouchers, which can be exchanged at your local grocery store for formula, milk, cheese, and other nutritious foods. You will also be eligible to receive nutrition education.
