NEWS RELEASE ISSUED OCTOBER 17, 2013 BY THE OFFICE OF THE KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT

Kansas WIC clinics resume issuing November, December checks

TOPEKA, Kan. – With the federal government shutdown ended, local WIC clinics can resume normal check issuance.

While October WIC checks were not impacted, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced on Oct. 9 that local WIC offices would limit the issuance of WIC checks to those dated through October 2013. During the shutdown, WIC clinics withheld checks dated November and December because of the uncertainly of federal funding.

All Kansas WIC clinics remain fully operational and serving clients.

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women Infants and Children (WIC) is a federally funded program administered in Kansas by KDHE through contracts with county health departments. WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support and supplemental, nutritious foods to low-income families. The Kansas WIC program serves approximately 70,000 participants every month, including:

· Pregnant women

· Breastfeeding women through the first year of their infant’s life

· Women who have had a baby within the past six months

· Infants under the age of 1

· Children from age 1 to 5.
