LANSING, MI – A new free mobile app recently released by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program is making it easier for potential and current clients to access benefits, schedule appointments and locate other program information.
Michigan WIC Connect offers existing clients the ability to view their available WIC food benefits, location of nearby grocery stores and upcoming WIC appointments on their mobile device. The app can also be used by people interested in the Michigan WIC program to help determine eligibility, schedule appointments or contact their local WIC agency to learn more about the program.
“We are very excited to offer Michigan WIC Connect to Michigan families,” said Stan Bien, Michigan WIC Director. “WIC Connect is another step forward toward accomplishing our vision of having a major positive impact on improving health outcomes for clients, being recognized as a national leader and achieving excellent customer satisfaction.”
WIC is a federally funded program that provides nutritious food, nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support and referrals to health and other services for eligible women, infants and children up to age 5.
Michigan WIC Connect is available for free in the App Store and Google Play. Visit Michigan.gov/wic for more information.
