Participation is up in a program provided through TriCounty Health Department. The WIC(wick) program services low-income women, infants and children with nutrition education and supplemental food through a federal grant. According to the TriCounty Health Department annual report, the local WIC program has seen an increase of 352 clients over the past year for a total of 1,264 clients and roughly $588,000 in food benefits were provided. This increase is an interesting contrast with the rest of the state that overall is reporting a decline in program participation. The local WIC program has a peer counselor that assists moms with common concerns as well as providing support for breastfeeding. The Baby Your Baby program is also provided by TriCounty Health and served a total of 146 women in 2015.
