WIC Program and WIC Vendor Partnership

The partnership between LA WIC and Authorized WIC Vendors is an integral component of a successful nutrition program.

The Vendor's role in the process of improving health is an important one. Vendors ensure that LA WIC Participants receive the correct type and amount of food in the month it is intended to be received. This serves as reinforcement to the LA WIC Participant's nutrition education. The Vendor's role is essential in making the Louisiana WIC Program successful.

Initial Authorization

LA WIC is not currently processing Vendor Applications for Initial Authorization, unless the vendor applicant would serve a participant access need. Vendor applicants may submit an Application for Initial Authorization from October 2 – May 31.

Stores that would like to apply for WIC Initial Authorization and believe they would serve a participant access need should complete and submit the Vendor Initial Authorization Application Request Form. Upon receipt of the form, LA WIC will conduct a participant access determination. If the vendor applicant would serve a participant access need, LA WIC will supply the vendor applicant with the Application for Initial Authorization for submission. If not, LA WIC will notify the vendor applicant that they may submit an Application for Initial Authorization from October 2 – May 31.
