WIC Program Funded
The Oklahoma WIC Program has secured funding for clients through February during the federal government shutdown.
Additional funds have been identified, and once received, will provide benefits through March.
“Right now, it is business as usual for WIC,” said Terry Bryce, OSDH WIC director. “Our clients can go to any WIC-approved grocery store to redeem their food benefits.”
Leaders at the Oklahoma State Department of Health have been participating in national planning sessions to stay updated on the payment status of federal grant funds, good fund expenditures and current funds available.
