Public Health (Women, Infants, and Children) 

Has your income changed? Are you needing more support? You may qualify for WIC (Women, Infants and Children) benefits. Complete the referral form, or call Grand County Public Health at 970-363-6692 and a local WIC staff member will contact you. Currently, all appointments are being completed over the phone, including enrollments.

WIC is the nation’s most successful and cost-effective public health nutrition program. We provide wholesome food, nutrition education, and community support for income-eligible women who are pregnant or postpartum, infants, and children up to five years old. Whether we are lending moms a sympathetic ear, providing them with free and healthy food, or referring them to outside care and social services, it is our goal to give them the resources, knowledge, and tools they need to be the moms they want to be.

Recently, a bill was passed to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The bill includes $500 million in additional funding for WIC and broad authority to USDA to grant waivers of regulatory requirements through September 30. The bill specifically permits USDA to grant waivers of the physical presence requirement – allowing for remote certifications and deferment of anthropometric and bloodwork requirements. These flexibilities will be increasingly essential as clinics continue to close and WIC adopts new practices to remotely serve participant needs. Learn More.
