WIC clinics open, benefits available
WIC benefits are available to Colorado families despite the federal government shutdown. Colorado WIC offices will remain open until further notice.
WIC and SNAP (food stamps) are different food assistance programs and should not be confused when hearing about the impacts of the federal shutdown on each program. Timing of when benefits are available are different. Here is a quick list of how the shutdown is affecting various food assistance programs, provided by Hunger Free Colorado.
