Helpful WIC CVB links, information, and webinar recordings in one convenient place...
The new WIC CVB Cash Value Benefit program began October 1. Benefits have now begun to be distributed to Participants - about 1/3rd in October, 1/3rd in November and the final 1/3rd in December so that all Participant will have their CVB benefits by the end of the year.
Why WIC CVB? The U.S Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has announced revisions to WIC Program food package regulations with the objective of better aligning WIC food packages with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and infant feeding practice guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics. This new program, called WIC CVB, is the result of these revisions. It gives women and children a certain amount of cash value for fruits and vegetables each month and adds fruits and vegetables in the form of baby food for infants.
