You must live in Arizona and fall under certain income requirements. A family of four can make up to $40,793 (up to 185% FPG). Many of our participants have never needed services before but during these tough economic times have lost jobs, their savings and now need help to get them over the hump until they can get back on their feet. Moms that have master's degrees or families that once made six figures but lost everything in the down market are now coming to WIC.
Qualifying children can be cared for by grandparents, single dads, aunts, uncles or other family members or foster parents (i.e. does not have to be birth mother or birth father).
