SUBJECT: WIC : Priority Restrictions
TO: Regional Directors

All Regions

Attached is the final version of Policy Memorandum 93-8, revised, based on your comments and suggestions, from the draft memorandum issued June 3, 1993.

One point, however, deserves additional clarification. Several of the comment letters suggested that specific guidance be provided on how to solve administrative problems that may arise to jeopardize the quality of service provided in local WIC agencies. We have not included such guidance in this final memorandum, primarily because these problems tend to vary widely from state to state; we believe that they are better addressed on an individual basis by each state agency, with assistance supplied as needed from FNS.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions regarding this policy. With your input, the policy guidance we are able to issue from this office is made stronger and more responsive to the needs of the WIC Program. Please contact the Policy Section if you have any questions about this particular policy.
