WIC State Agency General Infrastructure Grants


FY 2024 WIC General Infrastructure Grants will support WIC state agencies as they continue to modernize the program. Projects will support WIC infrastructure, including technological, digital, partnership, and/or outreach infrastructure at the state agency level through activities related to outreach, innovation, program modernization, and increased equity in program access through four tracks/objectives.

This RFA includes four application tracks, each with one objective. The four tracks include:

  1. Updating the state agency’s management information system (MIS) and/or electronic benefit transfer (EBT) system to meet new federal requirements.
    * Please see notes in the Tracks and Objectives section below for information about State agency model (SAM) user groups.
  2. Enhancing the state agency’s MIS, EBT system, and/or other technology used to provide WIC benefits and services. These enhancements must provide a better user experience for WIC applicants, participants, and staff and/or to improve longevity, flexibility, program integrity, and/or cost efficiency.
  3. Increasing WIC awareness among the public through adoption of new WIC branding and/or the conduct of partnership and/or outreach activities.
  4. Upgrading state and/or local agency technology equipment and/or supplies to improve WIC performance, security, and/or user experience (including by optimizing virtual services).


Each Application Submitted Must be for Only One Track. State agencies may apply for one or more of the tracks outlined above but are limited to one track per application. Section 4 of the RFA provides details for the application requirements for each track.

For each track, state agencies may apply either as an individual applicant or as the lead of a multi-state agency collaboration. Any lead of a multi-state agency collaboration will be considered the applicant and the funded recipient (i.e., the grantee). The lead state agency is responsible for completing and submitting all application components and will be the sole recipient of funding for the project; therefore responsible for all funded activities and required reporting.
