WIC Income Guidelines

Income eligibility standards are effective for certifying all new applicants and for re-certifying current participants at the time of their next certification on or after 7/1/2016. The expected number of babies is counted in the family size for WIC and Medical Assistance (MA).

Current income guidelines for Healthy Beginnings (HB) and Healthy Beginnings Plus (HBP) are also listed, and WIC refers potentially eligible individuals to these programs. Please note that only the annual figure will be taken into account when calculating income. The monthly figure is just an approximate value.
