  1. New Income Guidelines: The new income guidelines that will go into effect on Monday, April 1, 2013 are attached. We are awaiting final approval from USDA; if anything changes, we will send a revision. MOWINS will be updated on April 1 to reflect the new guidelines. We will send the laminated cards in a few weeks, after they have been printed.

It is catalog #530 and can be ordered from the DHSS website at http://health.mo.gov/warehouse/e-literature.html or by using the WIC-8 (attached). A sample copy of the magazine is attached.
