PUTNAM — Day Kimball Healthcare’s (DKH) Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program is supporting many newly eligible families due to the economic impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
WIC is offered by the CT Department of Public Health and administered locally through DKH’s Family Advocacy Programs.
With the passage of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act on March 18 to assist with the COVID-19 public health crisis, WIC received an increase in funding and increased ability to provide states with the flexibilities they need to support families that rely on the program.
Individuals who have lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic, or who are struggling to provide healthy food for their family during the crisis, should contact DKH’s WIC program to determine if they qualify to receive assistance. New participants can enroll by phone: 860-928-3660 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
