Government Shutdown: Impact on Michigan WIC Program

The Michigan Department of Community Health has received many questions regarding the impact of the federal government shutdown on WIC services. We understand the uncertainty this presents for our WIC clients, vendors and community partners. 

WIC clinics statewide will continue to operate as usual, and WIC approved stores will continue to accept and redeem WIC EBT card benefits. WIC is a federally funded USDA program and operates differently from State to State.  In Michigan, the Department of Community Health projects it can maintain all WIC services until early November. 

Michigan WIC is committed to keeping you informed. Please contact your local WIC clinic if you have additional questions.
Thank you for your continued support of the WIC Program.
