South Dakota WIC Guidelines Announced For 2021

May 3, 2021 | ,

(KVHT) – On Monday, the South Dakota Department of Health announced new income guidelines for the WIC program. The guidelines outline the maximum income South Dakota families can take and still be eligible for the program. WIC is a special supplemental nutrition program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The program provides funding to eligible moms, infants and children for designated grocery and food items to families in need. Officials say its goal is to offer education on healthy eating, nutrition and breastfeeding, make referrals to other services and help improve health by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets. The guidelines set WIC eligibility at 185% of the federal poverty level. That works out to an annual income of $23,828 for a family of one, and for a family of four, it’s $49,025.
