COLORADO WIC Monitoring Congressional Budget Discussion
As you may be aware, Congress has passed a continuing resolution to extend government funding to January 19, 2018. This keeps the government open, buying them more time to agree on a budget deal into the new year. Colorado WIC is federally funded and is carefully monitoring the situation.
  • At this time, there is no interruption of services or payments for WIC transactions.
  • If there is a shutdown, Colorado WIC intends to use saved funds to keep services going, including payments to authorized retailers for WIC shopping transactions, for as long as possible.
  • We will keep you informed and will notify you of any interruption that might occur with as much time as possible.
  • Colorado WIC is also in communication with Local WIC Agencies and WIC families and will notify them if there is any delay in benefits.
  • Updated information will be available on the website coloradowic.com.
Please be assured that, as always, we value our retail partners. Feel free to contact us with input or questions.
