We will be reviewing the requests during the next few days and may be contacting some agencies for clarification on their plans. We intend to notify Local WIC Providers on Wednesday, March 1 regarding the status of their application. However, due to the extremely high number of applications, some agencies may not be notified until Thursday, March 2. We will publish the list of funded agencies in next week's Monday email.
