WIC Eligibility

Mom and sonTo become eligible for Indiana WIC benefits, an applicant must meet the following requirements as listed below in the WIC Income Guidelines (Brochure):

  • An applicant must be an Indiana resident. The Indiana WIC Program currently works with approximately 150 non-profit clinics in all 92 counties to provide Indiana WIC services to applicants.
  • An applicant must be "categorically" eligible. The Indiana WIC Program serves:
    • Pregnant Women
    • Breastfeeding Women (up to baby's 1st birthday)
    • Non-Breastfeeding Postpartum Women (up to 6 months)
    • Infants (up to their 1st birthday)
    • Children (up to their 5th birthday)
  • An applicant must be "at nutritional risk." The specific criteria and parameters that indicate risk are determined by a health and dietary assessment performed by a health professional at the time of certification.
  • An applicant must be "income" eligible. Families receiving Medicaid, SNAP, or TANF are income-eligible for the Indiana WIC Program. If you are not a member of these other programs, check the income chart below to see if your family might qualify.
