On December 2, Congress extended a continuing resolution that would stabilize federal funding levels through February 18, 2022. The continuing resolution includes an anomaly provision that will extend the WIC benefit bump through March 31, 2022 – maintaining benefit levels are at 50% of recommended intake based on the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) guidance, resulting in $24/month for children, $43/month for pregnant and postpartum participants, and $47/month for breastfeeding participants. The National WIC Association has created a toolkit with graphics in various sizes to help agencies promote the updated amounts.
