THE TENNESSEE WOMEN, INFANTS AND CHILDREN OR WIC PROGRAM HAS TRANSITIONED TO AN ELECTRONIC BENEFIT TRANSFER SYSTEM FROM A PAPER-BASED METHOD OF ISSUING BENEFITS. TENNESSEE FAMILIES PARTICIPATING IN WIC NOW USE THEIR T-N WIC CARDS INSTEAD OF PAPER VOUCHERS TO PURCHASE WIC-APPROVED FOODS. T-N WIC IS NOW AVAILABLE IN ALL 95 COUNTIES OF TENNESSEE. WITH THE NEW T-N WIC SYSTEM, BENEFITS FOR WIC-APPROVED FOODS ARE AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED INTO AN ACCOUNT AND ACCESSED WITH A CARD SIMILAR TO A DEBIT CARD. THIS CARD REPLACES PAPER VOUCHERS AND CAN BE USED AT ANY OF THE 790 WIC-AUTHORIZED STORES STATEWIDE. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WIC IN TENNESSEE, CONTACT YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT.
