WIC protects the health of women, infants and children during critical times of growth and development to prevent future medical and developmental problems. The WIC program of West Virginia is administered by the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health, Office of Nutrition Services, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Resources.
In order to qualify for WIC, you must be: 1) a resident of the state of West Virginia; 2) a pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum woman, or an infant or child under the age of 5; and 3) individually determined by a health professional to be at nutrition risk.
In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:
|Household Size*||Maximum Income Level (Per Year)|
A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), automatically meets the income eligibility requirement.
