Background and Discussion:
The WIC Grant is awarded annually with a fiscal year beginning October 1 through September 30. The WIC Program provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support and education, supplemental foods and referrals to social service programs to eligible participants. Typical expenses include, salaries, temporary staff, fees and services, supplies, rent for lease payments, etc.




Expected Impact:
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.





Alternative Options:
This program provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support and education, supplemental foods and referrals to social service programs for 40,000 Harris County residents every month. There are no alternatives for this program due to its size and scope.
