Resources on WIC and Public Charge

February 26, 2018

In the past two weeks, in the wake of the leaked Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), NWA has developed some materials for our members concerning WIC and public charge. You can read more about this issue in our blog posts from February 12 and February 20. We hope the following resources will be of assistance to you as you navigate this uncertain time.

NWA will continue to share resources for use in clinics, monitor developments around rulemaking, and inform members about consequences for immigrant participants. Please be in touch with NWA staff with other concerns or if additional resources would be helpful – you can contact Brian Dittmeier at Thank you once again for your patience and dedication to serving all WIC families.
