State Spotlight: Oregon WIC and Locals Team Up to Successfully Implement Remote Service

Oregon WIC has made it a priority to support, work with, and hear from local WIC providers through the pandemic. Local WIC providers in Oregon have raised the importance of ensuring that decision-making in WIC be grounded in an equity framework, highlighting the need for Congress to extend USDA’s waiver authority for WIC. Tiare Sanna, Oregon’s WIC Director, says that Oregon WIC will "support implementation of remote service in order to prevent undue risk to participants and staff, as long as waivers are granted."
