SUBJECT 1: Upcoming State Holiday. The WIC state agency will be closed, and there will be no MOWINS Help Desk support, on Monday, May 31.
SUBJECT 2: WIC Invoices. WIC invoices for May 2021 (submitted for payment in the month of June), along with prior months, must be submitted through the Online WIC Invoicing System by close of business Tuesday, June 8, 2021. Invoices submitted after that date will be held and paid in July 2021. This change in schedule complies with the close of the State Fiscal Year 2021 payment processing deadlines. If you have questions, please contact Laura Thompson at Laura.Thompson@health.mo.gov or 573-526-7901.
SUBJECT 3: Press Release on CVB Temporary Increase. Attached is a press release template about the temporary increase in the cash value benefit for fruit and vegetable purchases (CVB) for WIC local agency use. The Department of Health and Senior Services will be releasing a similar press release soon. Customize the template to your WIC local agency information then send it to local media outlets to spread the word about the temporary increase.
