WIC Funding and Program Data
WIC Food and Nutrition Services and Administration (NSA) grant levels by fiscal year and state agency. Grant levels for the current fiscal year are posted approximately 30 days after an Agriculture appropriations bill has been signed into law and are updated quarterly and at fiscal year-end.
These reports are a compilation of fiscal year breastfeeding performance measurements, based on program participation data of the number of partially and fully breastfed infants for each WIC state and local agency.
Racial/Ethnic Group Enrollment by Categories
WIC racial/ethnic data was collected as part of the WIC Participant and Program Characteristics
(PC) 2018, conducted by Insight Policy Research for the Food and Nutrition Service. Data was
reported by 90 WIC state agencies based on reports submitted by nearly 1,800 WIC local agencies.
Attached are estimates of the number of infants and children (ages 1-4) in each state at or below 185 percent of poverty in 2017. The 2017 estimates are provided for use in the WIC funding formula to determine states’ fair shares of WIC food funds.
