National WIC Association

Member Benefit Fund

The goal of the Member Benefit Fund is to provide unique opportunities for learning and enrichment to enhance individual knowledge and allow for the development of collaborative projects. These funds will be administered on a local or regional level to improve the nutritional status and health outcomes for women, infants and children. Additionally, this reinvestment in individuals and communities will allow for new and creative solutions and ideas to be shared with members of NWA.
