|Process for Funding WIC Management Information Systems (MIS)
|WIC State Agency Program Directors
In May 2010, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) released a memorandum, titled “FY 2010 WIC Technology Funding”, that established the FY 2010 funding priorities for WIC technology projects. The referenced memorandum also included a new funding approval and award process for management information systems (MIS) that would be linked to Advanced Planning Document (APD) submission and approval. This memorandum (with attachments) provides additional information on the new approval process and includes sample documents that will assist state agencies with their funding requests.
We believe these modifications to the MIS funding process are positive steps that will allow WIC state agencies greater flexibility in document preparation and submission, which will improve the quality of documents submitted and the timely receipt of grant funds.
If you have any questions, please contact your regional office.
