WIC Vendors are an important part of the WIC Program, ensuring that participants buy WIC-approved foods.
The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) WIC Program is moving from a paper-based method of WIC benefits issuance (checks) to a plastic EBT cards method known as eWIC. The Rhode Island WIC Program began the pilot for eWIC in January 2020. The eWIC pilot will last through July 2020. Statewide roll-out is expected to happen from July through October of 2020. Checks will remain in circulation potentially through December 2020. Due to COVID-19, this estimated rollout date is tentative and will be updated as circumstances change.
