WIC, Medicaid, and SNAP: Teaming up to Improve the Health of Women and Children

By National WIC Association

A key component of WIC’s effectiveness in improving nutrition and health outcomes is the program’s strong partnerships with other healthcare, nutrition, and social service programs. On the federal level, WIC’s primary partners are Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and state and local WIC agencies collaborate with national, state, and local Medicaid and SNAP agencies to ensure that WIC families are able to meet their nutrition and healthcare needs.
