WIC Program Announces New Income Guidelines

 

The South Dakota Department of Health’s (DOH) Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program strives to ensure that families have the resources needed to be healthy and strong. On June 1, 2022, WIC income guidelines were updated.
WIC is a special supplemental nutrition program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provided at no cost to eligible moms, infants, and children. Its goal is to offer education on healthy eating, nutrition, and breastfeeding, make referrals to other services, and help improve health by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets.
Those whose income does not exceed the following amounts for the size of the family, could qualify for WIC:
185 percent of
Family Federal Poverty
Size Level
1 $25,142
2 $33,874
3 $42,606
4 $51,338
5 $60,070
6 $68,802
7 $77,534
8 $86,266
9 $94,998
10 $103,730
To find out eligibility for the WIC Program and to apply online go to https://sdwic.org/eligibility/. Or call for an appointment at the local WIC office/community health services office. Offices can be found under the county listings in your phone book or on the web at http://sdwic.org/locations/.
DOH continues its efforts to mitigate the effects of the formula shortage. Department staff members remain in communication with WIC vendors (primarily grocery stores) across the state who are critical partners in the delivery of WIC benefits. Additionally, the Department communicates directly with physicians to help them find formula for their patients. Families can call the HelpLine Center at 211 to locate food distribution sites in their area that may have formula. If WIC families or others have questions or concerns, they can reach out to their community health office or contact their provider directly. As more information becomes available, it can be found online at sdwic.org or doh.sd.gov. 
  WIC is an equal opportunity provider. More information about the program is available at http://sdwic.org/.
