GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN UPDATE: January 10, 2019
WIC currently has enough funding to continue business as usual for the near future. WIC clinics remain open. All participants should be allowed to shop and redeem their Utah WIC vouchers. WIC vouchers being presented can and should be accepted during the shutdown. All vouchers will be reimbursed through normal banking operations by the Utah WIC program. WIC vendors should not turn a WIC participant away during the Federal government shutdown. In the event that the shutdown extends beyond the month of February, we will provide further updates and guidance. If you have any questions please call the Utah WIC Program at 1-877-942-5437.
Utah WIC vendors are an essential and important part of providing healthy foods to WIC participants.
