Income Guidelines

Many Working Families Qualify for WIC

To qualify for WIC, your household income must be at or below 185% of the federal poverty income level. WIC uses your gross (before tax and deduction) income to determine if you are eligible. WIC counts all of the members of the household. WIC counts an unborn baby as a household member.  View income guidelines on the Department of Health Service’s website or refer to the table below.
