Ohio Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

Ohio > Ohio Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

 

Program Description:

WIC helps income eligible pregnant and breastfeeding women, women who recently had a baby, infants, and children who are at health risk due to inadequate nutrition. The program improves pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies; reduces infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight (infants under 5 ? pounds are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries, and physical abnormalities) and provides infants and children with a healthy start in life by improving poor or inadequate diets. The Ohio WIC program is administered by the Ohio Department of Health.

 

General Program Requirements:

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the State of Ohio, pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum woman, infant or child up to 5 years of age and: (1) are individually determined by a health professional to be at nutrition risk; and, (2) meet an income standard, or are determined automatically income eligible. A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Food Stamp Program, Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, automatically meets the income eligibility requirement.
