Standard 10. Program Coordination

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.
