Although New York State WIC serves about 390,000 New Yorkers, nearly twice as many could benefit from its public health services. As part of our NYS WIC targeted outreach project, we partnered with the Center for Human Services Research (CHSR) at the University at Albany to conduct a comprehensive statewide assessment. The assessment includes a survey to learn why eligible families may not enroll in WIC and about WIC participants’ experiences with the program.
