SUBJECT 2: eWIC Card Reader/Writers
JOB POSTING: Nutritionist – Joplin City WIC
SUBJECT 1: eWIC Card Storage Reminder. This a reminder that WIC local agencies are to have a secure, locked location for eWIC cards at each location where eWIC cards will be stored. A locked file cabinet or drawer is sufficient to meet this requirement. If you have any questions, please contact your Administrative TA.
SUBJECT 2: eWIC Card Reader/Writers. As WIC participants may relocate during the eWIC pilot, the WIC State Agency will ship one (1) card reader/writer to each local agency that is not included in the Pilot area. This card reader/writer device will be shipped to and should remain at your “main site.” All local agencies will receive additional card reader/writers as the statewide rollout approaches.
