SUBJECT 2: WIC COVID-19 and In-Kind Funds Reimbursement Reminder. All Local agency (LA) WIC Coordinators and Agency Administrators were sent a reimbursement request survey on June 26th concerning unexpected COVID-19 expenses and In-kind funds budgeted for FFY 2020. All LAs are asked to review their Administrative Cost Reports (ACRs) and FFY 2020 Local Agency Plans (LAPs) to determine if additional funding is needed for the current fiscal year ending September 30, 2020.
Please complete the reimbursement request survey, and return to WICOperations@health.mo.gov
Only specified expenses for WIC COVID-19 are eligible to be reimbursed, with appropriate documentation to support those expenses. If In-kind funds were included in your agency’s approved LAP, only those In-kind funds may be considered for reimbursement.
The survey must be returned by close of business Friday, July 10, 2020.
Please contact WICOperations@health.mo.gov if you have any questions.
