Exclusion of Military Housing Payments

Last Modified: 02/12/2014

The final WIC Exclusion of Military Housing Payments Rule was published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2002. This final rule amends the regulations for the WIC Program to incorporate a non-discretionary provision in the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, that affects the WIC application and certification process. In determining an applicant’s income eligibility for WIC, this final rule provides WIC State agencies the option to exclude payments to military personnel for privatized housing, whether on or off military installations.
