TVCCA’s WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) program recently went through a major software overhaul and began issuing EBT cards that electronically load food benefits onto a card that is swiped when grocery shopping.
No more paper checks! The receipt will show what items were WIC approved and will even give the balance of the food items still available.
We started this big change with a weeklong training at UCONN in mid April and have oriented about 1/3 of our 3,500 clients. Appointments are taking a little longer because of this, so we are asking our WIC clients and TVCCA community to continue to have patience as we sort out the many phone calls and walk ins for our service.
Feedback on the use of the eWIC card has been very positive and it will be sometime in late June that we have completed the transition. Thank you for your support as we modernize and join the 21st century!
