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! 


What Can WIC Save You?

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