Interim Rule: Revisions in the WIC Food Packages

This interim rule revises regulations governing the WIC food packages to align the WIC food packages with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) and current infant feeding practice guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, better promote and support the establishment of successful long-term breastfeeding, provide WIC participants with a wider variety of food, and provide WIC state agencies with greater flexibility in prescribing food packages to accommodate participants with cultural food preferences.

APD Costs Incurred by State Agencies Other Than Social Services Agencies

FNS has become aware of a growing trend in states to consolidate or centralize some or all of the state's IT services across departmental lines. Because these organizational changes can have unintended consequences for our Food Stamp and WIC state agencies, we think it prudent to remind states of FNS requirements regarding such arrangements.
