WIC-authorized grocery stores continue to accept WIC
A partial federal government shutdown remains in effect.
Timeline extended: Colorado WIC has funds available for normal operations until February 28, 2019.
Please help us spread the word to cashiers and WIC shoppers that WIC benefits are available to Colorado families despite the federal government shutdown. WIC offices remain open until further notice and WIC-authorized grocery stores continue to be paid for WIC purchases. Families can continue to shop for and buy their WIC foods.
WIC is an important nutrition and food security program. Our biggest concern is protecting the health and well-being of families. The Colorado WIC state office is monitoring the financial situation on a day-to-day basis. We will let you know as soon as we know more. If the shutdown continues in the weeks to come, Colorado WIC will work with you to minimize disruption.

Please let us know if you or your staff have input, concerns and/or questions.
