Eligibility Requirements

Infants and children up to age five are eligible to receive the food benefits provided by the WIC Wisconsin program. Additionally, pregnant and breast feeding women can receive food packages. The focus of the program is to eliminate inadequate nutrition in children's diets

Income Guidelines

Vouchers for food under the Wisconsin WIC program are available for families who meet income guidelines. As of 2010, the program monthly income maximums range from $1,670 for a family of one to $5,706 for a family of eight. The Wisconsin WIC program has higher income allowances than other food programs, so those who are ineligible for food stamps (FoodShare) may still be eligible for WIC services.

In order to qualify, you must also have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts.

Household Size Gross Annual Income
1 $20,665
2 $27,991
