Toolkit: WIC Remote Benefits and $25-49 Fruit and Veggie Benefit

Use this toolkit to promote two temporary but important WIC flexibilities—the cash value benefit (CVB) increase and remote services. Learn more about these policies on our COVID-19 Updates page.

CVB increase: through December 16, most WIC moms and kids get $25-49/month to buy fruits and veggies—3-4 times more than before.

Remote benefits: WIC waivers and flexibilities associated with the COVID-19 pandemic have been extended through at least mid-April, 2023. WIC agencies may continue to enroll and serve participants remotely via phone, text, or videoconference, and participants may postpone certain medical tests. Remote issuance of WIC benefits onto eWIC cards is now permanently allowable.
