DPH: Retailers


The WIC Program has completed rollout of the eWIC card.  Paper WIC checks are phasing out.  At the time of rollout, we are anticipating that all authorized WIC vendors will already have their contracts in place with Xerox and that their stores are ready to accept eWIC cards.  Rollout of eWIC will continue throughout Connecticut until June 2016.

The next open enrollment for vendors is January 2017 and the information will be posted here.

Note: WIC vendor authorization cannot be transferred from one owner to another. A new application must be submitted.


Any store interested in becoming an authorized WIC vendor must apply during an enrollment period. Only vendors that are authorized as WIC vendors by the State of Connecticut WIC Program may redeem Connecticut WIC benefits. 

Thank you for your interest in the Connecticut WIC Program.
