MUSCOGEE (CREEK) NATION WOMEN, INFANTS AND CHILDREN (WIC) PROGRAM RELEASES STATEMENT
In an effort to provide assurance to families, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Women, Infants and Children Program (MCN WIC) is secure in federal funding at this time. WIC agency directors across the nation have been participating in planning sessions to stay up-to-date on the payment status of federal funds. Right now, it is business as usual for WIC.
We have received numerous inquiries and we want WIC participants to know they can continue to receive services at their usual WIC clinic.
Despite misleading information conveyed on social media, the MCN WIC Program is 100 percent federally-funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)/Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) and has always served the public regardless of race.
If you would like to apply for WIC, please call 1-800-482-1979 to schedule an appointment.
Released under the authority of:
WIC Program Director
Muscogee (Creek) Nation
