Shutdown is generating a lot of questions.

Polk County Public Health officials say they are fielding a lot of questions regarding the impact of the federal government shutdown on the WIC program. They want to assure WIC participants that the program is “operating business as usual.”

    Polk County WIC continues to schedule appointments and provide WIC services to its clients. Minnesota WIC-approved stores continue to accept Minnesota WIC vouchers.

    If the current status of the program changes, PCPH officials will notify the public.
