WIC Program Offers Displace Disaster Assistance

Post Date:09/06/2017 3:47 PM

The Texas Women, Infants, and Children program is implementing special procedures in the wake of the unprecedented flooding due to Hurricane Harvey. 

These procedures will allow people to easily enroll and receive food and infant formula benefits, breastfeeding support, and referrals for shelter and other resources. Disaster victims will be asked to sign a self-declaration form declaring their need for WIC benefits due to Hurricane Harvey. 

WIC benefits are available for:

  • Pregnant women
  • Women who’ve recently had a child
  • Infants and children under five

 Anyone with custody or guardianship of infants and children under five can apply for their child. 

Current WIC clients that have evacuated and left behind or lost their WIC card, food or formula benefits, can be replaced by going to an open WIC clinic. 

If you are interested in signing up for WIC or are a current client in need of benefits. Contact the Abilene Taylor County WIC office at 325-692-1680.
