WIC Special Project Grants

By USDA Food and Nutrition Service

Each year, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) awards WIC Special Project Grants, on a competitive basis, to State WIC Programs. These grants are awarded to fund innovative projects that have the potential to improve and enhance the WIC Program. The grants are awarded to support Revitalizing Quality Nutrition Services (RQNS) in WIC. RQNS is an evolving process of continuous program improvement.
