WIC Income Eligibility

In order to financially qualify for the WIC Program, a participant’s combined household gross income cannot exceed the WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines. The WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines are 185% of the Poverty Guidelines published in the Federal Register on April 26, 2019. The WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines listed below are in effect for Colorado beginning July 1, 2019.

WIC Income Eligibility Chart and Link to Readable PDF

Use the following steps to manually calculate gross income.

  • If a household has only one income source or if all income sources have the same frequency, compare the income, or the sum of the separate incomes, to the published WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines for the appropriate frequency and household size.
  • If a household reports income sources at more than one frequency, perform the following calculations.
    • Annualize all income by multiplying weekly income by 52, income received every two weeks by 26, income received twice a month by 24, and income received monthly by 12.
    • Do not round the values resulting from each conversion.
    • Add together all the unrounded, converted values.
    • Compare the total to the annual income for the appropriate household size to determine income eligibility.
