WIC Nutrition Program Will Still Serve Clients If State Government Shuts Down

This is due to the critical nature of WIC services and because WIC is federally funded. If the Washington state government shuts down July 1, 2015:

  • Clients can use their WIC checks at contracted stores.
  • Local WIC clinics will be open to provide WIC services.
  • The State WIC office will operate as usual.
  • Authorized WIC vendors will still accept WIC checks and vendors will still receive payment.

WIC has openings for more clients. Locate a WIC clinic near you at
