This WIC Program was the first WIC Program in Connecticut and one of the first in the nation. They provide healthy food information and nutrition education to pregnant women, post-partum women, infants and children living in the Greater New Haven area, Milford and West Haven. To enroll in the program you must be income eligible and/or have a nutritional and/or medical risk. The staff at Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center is specially trained to help mothers and children stay healthy and eat nutritional meals. They also have a nutritionist which specialize in lactation/breastfeeding techniques and education. WIC refers clients to other programs as needed such as Husky, Food Stamps, Social Services, etc.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Wic website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
