To become eligible for Indiana WIC benefits, an applicant must meet the following requirements:
• An applicant must be an Indiana resident.  The Indiana WIC Program currently works with approximately 150 non-profit clinics in all 92 counties to provide Indiana WIC services to applicants.
• An applicant must be "categorically" eligible.  The Indiana WIC Program serves:
• Pregnant Women
• Breastfeeding Women (up to baby's 1st birthday)
• Non-Breastfeeding Postpartum Women (up to 6 months)
• Infants (up to their 1st birthday)
• Children (up to their 5th birthday)
• An applicant must be "at nutritional risk."  The specific criteria and parameters that indicate risk are determined by a health and dietary assessment performed by a health professional at the time of certification.
• An applicant must be "income" eligible.  Families receiving Medicaid, Food Stamps, and TANF are income eligible for the Indiana WIC Program.  If you are not a member of these other programs, check the income chart below to see if your family might qualify.

These guidelines take effect May 1, 2012.
