How does HuBERT count some-breastfeeding women?
Some-breastfeeding women who are more than 6 months postpartum are automatically counted by HuBERT during the End-of-Month process. There is no correlation between these participants being counted and the letter that automatically prints for them when benefits are issued to their linked infants.

How Do I Monitor Daily Participation Counts?
Use the Year-to-Date Participation and Outlays in State Office Reports Environment
This is the only HuBERT report that will provide your agency's month-to-date participation; use this report to print your daily count. The report displays the WIC fiscal year (October – September) and consists of two pages (use the arrow icons in the top left corner when displayed on screen). All references to Outlays can be ignored for participation purposes.
- C/O = months that have been closed out; a month's closeout occurs after 60 days
- 30DY = EOM has been run but not closed out yet
- ISSD = EOM has been run for that month (initial)
- OPEN = EOM has NOT run for that month
- Women/Infants Part. BF > Max = Mostly-breastfeeding
- Women/Infants Part. BF < Max = Some-breastfeeding
Report Guidance is also available.
Factors that Impact Participation Count
- This report is affected by the End-of-Month (EOM) process that currently runs between the 15th and 20th of each month.
- EOM adds participants without food packages (FBF Infants < 6 months old and Some-BF women > 6 months postpartum) to the count as long as their linked mom or infant receives benefits for that month.
Late Issuance: Your count will continue to increase for the previous month due to late issuance since participants can receive benefits up until the day before their next set begins.
Tri-Monthly Issuance: Even though benefits are issued tri-monthly, the report will only show a count up to the current month; you cannot run the report for future months.
