Pace's WIC Services & Benefits Available During Federal Government Shutdown
The Indiana Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program of Pace Community Action Agency, Inc. is providing services as usual during the federal government shutdown and has funding to support benefits through March. Clients are not currently experiencing any changes to their benefits because of the shutdown. Indiana WIC will continue to work with federal and state partners to make plans should the shutdown extend past March and will provide additional updates as needed.

Individuals and families who are currently enrolled in WIC can keep their appointments and can continue to use their WIC EBT cards to redeem benefits at WIC-approved vendors. Any clients experiencing problems redeeming their benefits should contact Pace’s WIC clinic or call 1-800-522-0874.
