Resource type
Waivers
Resource Materials

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act gave FNS authority to grant waivers to states of the requirement that all individuals seeking to enroll or re-enroll in WIC do so in person (i.e., physical presence). This includes a waiver to defer certain anthropometric (i.e., height/length and weight) and bloodwork requirements used to determine nutritional risk.
