October WIC Checks Now Available

One of the major impacts of the partial shutdown of the Federal Government has been that participants in the Women Infant’s and Children’s Program (WIC) were not able to receive October checks. The situation has changed. Lisa Martin, with Marion Public Health, tells KNIA and KRLS News that the state of Iowa has now stepped in to fund those payments for the time being. Checks for October are now available.
