MONTGOMERY – Due to the federal government shutdown effective, Oct. 1, 2013, the future of the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program is uncertain. The Alabama WIC Program is continuing to issue food instruments. Participants are currently receiving one month of WIC benefits.

 

The Alabama Department of Public Health will continue to reassess the impact to the WIC Program daily based on guidance from the United States Department of Agriculture.
