Support the Wise Investment in Our Children (WIC) Act

By National WIC Association

The Wise Investment in our Children (WIC) Act, sponsored by Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Susan Collins
(R-ME), is common-sense legislation that would improve maternal and child health outcomes in the United States by expanding WIC eligibility for at-risk infants, children, and new mothers.
WIC has the potential to make an even greater impact should the WIC Act be adopted by making WIC more widely accessible to mothers and young children during key developmental periods.
