WIC Program in Wyoming Still Operating
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Health says the Women, Infants and Children program has not been affected by the federal budget impasse.
Agency spokeswoman Kim Deti says the department has been getting calls from residents in the program concerned whether their benefits were being cut off.
Deti says the Wyoming WIC program has enough money to operate normally for another few weeks or so. There are about 11,000 Wyoming residents who get benefits through the WIC program. The program provides food and health support to low-income women and children up to age 5.
