Ohio WIC Program Income Guidelines

  • In order to be eligible for WIC, the gross countable income of the economic unit, of which the applicant/participant is a member, must be less than or equal to the Ohio WIC program income guidelines for economic unit size provided in the following chart. WIC income guidelines are updated each year.
  • Note: A pregnant woman counts as more than one family member. A person who currently receives Medicaid, Food Stamps, or Ohio Works First (OWF) will automatically meet the income eligibility criteria for WIC.
