Information and Resources for Vendors
MN WIC Program
The Minnesota WIC program is planning for the implementation of a WIC EBT system. Each State is required to implement this system, known as eWIC, by 2020.
We encourage you to email us any questions that you have about eWIC at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application for eWIC Vendor Integration Funds
Minnesota WIC is offering an opportunity for WIC Authorized stores to apply for funding to upgrade their cash register systems, so that they will be able to accept integrated eWIC payments.
If you are interested on applying for funding, please download the Application for eWIC Vendor Integration Funds (PDF). In order to help you plan for eWIC, please see the tentative eWIC rollout schedule below.
