WIC Participants will receive an increase in Cash Value Benefits through September 30, 2023.
The Cash Value Benefit amounts increased to:
- $25 for children
- $44 for pregnant and post-partum women
- $49 for fully/partially breastfeeding women
- $73.50 for fully breastfeeding women with multiples
Families that have already been issued benefits for April, 2022 and beyond, may call their WIC clinic to schedule an
appointment to have the increased CVB amount added to their WIC card.
Louisiana WIC (LA WIC) is partnering with WIC Authorized Walmart stores in Louisiana to offer the use of LA WIC EBT cards at self-checkout lanes. Participants may NOT use self-checkout lanes at any other stores.
Louisiana WIC participants now get the help they need during pregnancy and beyond with unlimited Pacify memberships which provide 24/7 access to FREE breastfeeding support and a direct contact to their local LA WIC clinic.
As part of the Louisiana WIC team, you’ll be helping your participants with enrollment and app support, including providing participants with the required enrollment codes. Visit the LA WIC Staff – Pacify website to access available staff tools.
If you have questions please contact Tara Landry.
The Virtual Support Group Flyer will be updated monthly.
The BNFT app links participants’ Louisiana WIC EBT card to their app profile, which allows participants to check their benefit balances. Participants need a valid email to use the app.
Review the Staff Bnft App document or training video listed below, for tips related to common participant app issues.
