Streamlining and Modernizing WIC Enrollment
By Neuberger Z
This report explains why streamlining the certification process is important and describes opportunities for state and local policies to better support streamlining. Streamlining could free up staff time to devote to providing WIC’s core services and make it easier for eligible families to enroll in WIC and continue receiving benefits as their babies become toddlers. The report is built around eight case studies of streamlining measures that agencies adopted, including their outcomes and the lessons they learned; those case studies offer concrete examples of steps that other state and local agencies can take.
