Background and Discussion:
The WIC Grant is awarded annually with a fiscal year beginning October 1 through September 30. The original award for this fiscal year was $8,283,510 and was approved by Commissioners Court in August 2020. The revised funding will allow for additional expenses incurred. Typical expenses will include temporary staffing and supplies.

Fiscal Impact:
This is to accept additional funds from HHSC for the existing WIC Contract referenced above. These funds only apply for this fiscal year which will end September 30th. There will be no impact to subsequent fiscal years as these funds are allocated for the current fiscal year and can only be utilized during the current fiscal year.
