CALL CSKT WIC at 406-745-3525 extension 5068 for assistance.
WIC is a crucial public health program in response to the COVID-19 crisis. As many more families find themselves in economic uncertainty it is imperative that all eligible persons have access to WIC. It is also important that there is no stigma for those who need our services. We can all play a part in encouraging eligible persons to join WIC and to make their experience as pleasant as possible.
Although local WIC agencies are closed to the public for face-to-face appointments to flatten the curve of this virus—CSKT WIC staff can still complete appointments over the phone.
As the nation’s most successful and cost-effective public health nutrition program, WIC is designed to influence lifetime nutrition and health behaviors for participating families. If you are pregnant, a caregiver, a foster parent, grandparent, or a parent with children under 5, you can get the right personalized support for you and your family.
Households that are enrolled in the following programs automatically meet income eligibility for WIC:
- Healthy Montana Kids Plus (HMK-Plus) and Medicaid
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
- Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)
- National School Lunch Program (free and reduced-price meals)
