WIC Program: Improved Oversight of Income Eligibility Determination Needed
Kay E. Brown (au)
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides nutritious foods and assistance to low-income pregnant and postpartum women, infants, and young children. Research has shown that WIC helps to improve birth and dietary outcomes and contain health care costs. The U.S. Dept. of Agricultureńˇ╗s (USDAńˇ╗s) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) oversees the program, which is administered by state and local agencies. While federal regulations define criteria that must be used to determine applicantsńˇ╗ income eligibility for WIC, state and local agencies are also given some discretion. In addition, federal law allows families who participate in other assistance programs, such as Medicaid, to be automatically income-eligible for WIC. This report assessed: (1) How do state and local criteria for determining WIC income eligibility vary? (2) To what extent are individuals who would otherwise be ineligible for WIC deemed eligible due to their participation in other programs? (3) How does USDA assist and monitor state determination of WIC income eligibility? Tables and figure. This is a print on demand report.
