The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you’re on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser’s address (or “location”) bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that’s been signed by the U.S. government. The https:// means all transmitted data is encrypted — in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
The State and local agency coordinate program operations with services of other public and private programs at the local, State and National level that will benefit participants.
Purpose: Program coordination helps to meet the additional needs of participants to improve their health, nutrition, and social needs, as well as provide a continuum of care to support women, infants, and children. Collaborations with key stakeholders and community partners allow WIC staff to form referral networks and develop strategies to address participants’ needs.
