Georgia WIC is open and available for Women, Infants, and Children during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Contact your local WIC office for adjusted COVID-19 services available in your area.


WIC COVID-19 Update

The Georgia WIC Team continues to streamline processes, explore flexible options and request waivers, of USDA FNS, necessary to expedite and facilitate WIC services in light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic.  Approval for a waiver of physical presence has been granted along with the ability to issue benefits remotely. Other waiver requests are continuously being submitted. Georgia WIC is actively exploring the possibility of opening the Gateway Customer portal.  Opening the Customer Portal may alleviate the need for participants and applicants to physically go into a WIC Clinic to receive services.  As we continue to work through current circumstances, please know that our aim is to ensure that every action minimizes barriers for the citizens of Georgia.  Georgia WIC is here for you and will make every effort to provide platinum customer service during this time of need. Please contact your local WIC Clinic for adjusted COVID-19 services available in your area. See a list of USDA approved waivers for Georgia.
