Understanding Your Eligibility

The WIC program serves a diverse group of individuals and families. If you're pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding, or a parent, grandparent or guardian of a child under five, you may qualify.

Additionally, to qualify for Georgia WIC, families need to meet income criteria, reside in Georgia, and have a nutritional or medical risk assessed by a healthcare professional. If applicants currently receive Medicaid, TANF, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), they are automatically income eligible. Foster children under the age of five may also be eligible for WIC.
