What's new for 2020

In an effort to continue to offer greater access to healthy, nutritious foods to NJ WIC participants, the State WIC Agency has made changes to the January 2017 New Jersey WIC Approved Food List. The Food List has been revised and renamed the “NJ WIC Food and Program Guide 2020".

Important Notice
New Jersey eWIC Update!!

The New Jersey Department of Health, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) will be transitioning from paper checks to electronic benefits (eWIC) in the future. eWIC is an electronic system that replaces paper WIC checks with a magnetic stripe card (on-line) for food benefit issuance and redemption at New Jersey authorized stores.
As the WIC State Agency continues to move forward with eWIC activities, all NJ WIC Authorized vendors will be updated with information by way “eWIC News” messages. These notifications will be sent by email and many will be posted on this site. This is the first of many notifications to update your store on eWIC.
You may periodically check this Department of Health, WIC website https://www.nj.gov/health/fhs/wic/vendors/ebt/ for updates. The WIC website has been updated with the differences between paper WIC checks and the eWIC system (see below). You can also vote for the design of our State’s future eWIC Card image; cast your vote no later than January 15, 2019. Vote for your favorite eWIC Card image at http://healthsurveys.nj.gov/NoviSurvey/n/zz232.aspx.

Please share this notification with store personnel as appropriate to ensure they areaware of future WIC changes. If you have any questions, please contact a Vendor unit representative at (609) 292-9560 or via email at NJ.WICVendor@doh.nj.gov.
