WIC Eligibility

Income requirements for WIC

Apply | Texas WIC

Who is eligible?

  • Pregnant women
  • New mothers
  • Infants
  • Children up to their 5th birthday
  • Parents, step-parents, guardians, and foster parents of infants and children under the age of 5 can apply for their children
WIC is open to many incomes and families.  If you are on Medicaid, TANF, or SNAP you may automatically qualify for WIC.  If you don't qualify for those programs, you may still be eligible for WIC.  

At the clinic, your friendly WIC staff will:

  • Look at your proof of income for your household. 
  • Ask a few questions about your family's health and nutrition habits.
  • Weigh, measure and check iron status for you (if pregnant) or your child.
