Texas WIC has announced that the WIC fruit and vegetable dollar amount increase is now extended through September.
This extension, which is now being offered through Sept. 30, 2024, has different dollar amounts based on your category. Eligible clients will receive the following:
- Children get $26 each month
- Pregnant, postpartum and some breastfeeding clients get $47 each month
- Fully and partially breastfeeding clients get $52 each month
If your benefits for November and December are for the lower dollar amount, WIC advises: “Use the myWIC app or contact your WIC office to schedule an appointment to update your card. In myWIC, choose the appointment called “Load WIC Card” to schedule a time to update your card with the higher dollar amount, according to its website.
You can also check your WIC benefits by requesting a balance receipt from the cashier at Grocery Services North.
WIC benefits are expected to return to their normal levels Oct. 2024, which are $12 for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women and $10 for children ages 1 to 5.
