Comment Period End Date

This rule proposes revisions to funding and funds allocation procedures for the Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) in order to simplify and update the funding process in anticipation of a fully funded program. The proposed amendments will provide a greater share of funds to states receiving comparatively less than their fair share of funds based on their WIC income eligible population, simplify and better manage the food funding allocation process by eliminating obsolete features and provide all state agencies with stability funding, adjusted for inflation, to the extent funds are available.
