Modernizing and Streamlining WIC Eligibility Determination and Enrollment Processes
By Neuberger, Z
This project aimed to examine how WIC clinics can simplify the processes of applying for and maintaining WIC eligibility. Data was collected using interviews, site visits, and a workshop. This report is designed to serve as a guide for state and local WIC staff who wish to comprehensively assess their policies and practices regarding eligibility determinations and enrollment to identify opportunities to streamline them. Streamlining these processes could free up staff time to devote to providing WIC’s core services and could make it easier for eligible families to enroll in WIC and continue receiving benefits as their babies become toddlers.
