Income – If you already receive Medicaid, SNAP (Food Stamps) or Work First, you are already income eligible. If you don't, we screen household income. Household income must be less than 185% of the US poverty Income Guidelines.

Residence – We serve all NC counties. Proof of address of where you live in North Carolina is required.

Identification – Proof of ID is required for whoever is applying for WIC services.

Medical/Nutritional Risk – It is determined by a nutritionist. A client talks to a nutritionist to determine whether or not they are eligible based on a nutritional or medical risk.
