WIC available to all who are eligible

Program not included in the federal government’s final public charge rule, available regardless of immigration status

Many immigrants in Utah question how recent changes to the public charge rule will affect their families. WIC, the supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children, is not included in the rule. Pregnant women, newborns and children up to the age 5 may fully participate in the WIC program regardless of immigration or citizenship status, according to a statement from the Utah Department of Health.
