Agency History

The Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC Program ) is a federally-funded program under the authority of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, Section 17. The program is designed to provide food supplements, health care, and consumer education to eligible women and children who face nutritional risk. It is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) - Food and Nutrition Service, through regional offices and state agencies. During the time period of these records, the Texas Department of Health Resources administered the program in Texas. The Texas Department of Health Resources (1975-1977) was preceeded and succeeded by the Texas Department of Health.
