Congress Set to Extend WIC Increase Through September

March 10, 2022 8:50 AM | Campbell (Administrator)

On Tuesday, Congress announced a bipartisan $1.5 trillion agreement to fund the federal government which includes $6 billion for WIC and an extension of the benefit bump for fruits and vegetables through September 30, 2022. Benefit issuance will remain at current levels: $24/month for children, $43/month for pregnant and postpartum participants, and $47/month for breastfeeding participants.

The House voted on the package and passed the proposal yesterday, with the Senate to take up the legislation later this week. We applaud Congress for including this provision in the final agreement.
