What are the eligibility requirements?
- Must meet the WIC income guidelines which are set at or below 185% of the federal poverty income limit (WIC can count an unborn infant as a household member unless it is against your beliefs to do so). **
- Complete a nutrition assessment with WIC staff. You and your WIC nutritionist will talk about you, your baby’s or your child’s eating habits, overall health, and any questions about your family’s health or nutrition goals.
- Live in Connecticut but you do not need to be a U.S. citizen. (WIC does not require proof of citizenship or alien status and participation in WIC will not affect your immigration or naturalization status).
**Recipients of the Special Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, assistance under the Temporary Family Assistance (TFA) program or the HUSKY (Medicaid) program are automatically income-eligible for the WIC program. A person who documents that he/she is a member of a family that contains a TFA recipient or that contains a pregnant woman or an infant who receives HUSKY/Medicaid shall also be determined adjunctively income eligible for WIC.
