Texas WIC Income Guidelines
WIC is open to many incomes and families. If you are on Medicaid, TANF, or SNAP you meet the income eligibility guidelines for WIC. If you don’t qualify for these programs, you may still qualify for WIC by meeting the income guidelines for your household. The Recovery Rebate Credit, also known as stimulus checks, and the Child Tax Credit direct payments are not included when calculating your income to determine eligibility.
|Number of Household Members*||Gross Monthly Household Income**|
|1||$0 up to $1,986|
|2||$0 up to $2,686|
|3||$0 up to $3,386|
|4||$0 up to $4,086|
|5||$0 up to $4,786|
|6||$0 up to $5,486|
