In Waukesha County, WIC is administered through the Waukesha County Public Health Division.
Electronic Benefit Cards (eWIC) has come to Waukesha County (September 2015)
Since the beginning of the WIC Program, the food benefits have been issued via paper checks. In 2015, Wisconsin began converting to an electronic benefit card, called eWIC. The family food benefit is loaded on a card that can be used at WIC authorized vendors: English (en español). The family uses the benefit throughout the month as food items are needed. Checking out at the register has become hassle free for cashiers and WIC families as the register is programmed to recognize the foods that are WIC approved: English (en español). eWIC began in Waukesha County in September 2015.
