Can My Family Get WIC?

Find out if you’re eligible.

WIC & SNAP = Better Together

Hello, you may have received information about a referral sent to the New Mexico Department of Health’s Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program after your last approval for benefits from the New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD). Because of your recent approval for benefits with the HSD, you may also be eligible to get additional benefits though WIC. WIC program staff will contact you with more information to see if you are eligible to get WIC benefits as well. If you would like to know more about the WIC program please visit our website.  Thank you!

Participating in the WIC program until your child is 5 years old can save you around $4,000.

On March 15, 2022, President Biden signed the $1.5 trillion omnibus agreement into law, extending increased fruit and vegetable WIC benefits through September 30, 2022. This bill allocates $6 billion of funds to WIC and allows the fruit and vegetable benefits to continue at the current amounts.
