Final Rule

This final rule amends the regulations for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) 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.
